In response to President Bush's foreign policy speech on Iraq, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) says Bush is using scare tactics, and that there's nothing new in his speech — he's still equating the war on terror with Iraq.

Boxer says it's time to stop trying to scare the American people, and that Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld should be replaced. Boxer is introducing a resolution to start bringing troops home in six months. Melissa Block talks with Boxer.
