President Bush is poised to meet with Iraqi President Nouri al-Maliki in Amman, Jordan. Topics for discussion include the status of U.S. troops in Iraq and continued sectarian violence.

NPR's Scott Simon discusses those issues with senior news analyst Dan Schorr, along with two high-profile deaths: Tuesday's assassination of Lebanese Interior Minister Pierre Gemayel and the former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, who died Thursday in London.
