Robert Siegel talks with National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley at the White House about North Korea, Iraq, Iran and the fight against terrorism.

Hadley says that while the United States has gotten Iraq started on the path to democracy, the progress there has been slower than what experts estimated it would be.

He also says that he expects the violence to continue for some time — and that Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki's governemnt needs to do more and move faster toward stemming the sectarian violence there.
