President Bush Friday defended a new policy that allows U.S. troops to kill Iranian agents found in Iraq.
The president signed off on the administration's "kill or capture" policy last fall, according to reports in The Washington Post. Friday, he said that the authorization does not mean that the United States will conduct military operations in Iran.
In addition to clashing over Iran's involvement in Iraq, Washington and Tehran have sharply disagreed over Iran's plans to develop its nuclear capabilities.
Reporter Dafna Linzer, who wrote about the new policy in the Post, speaks with host Madeleine Brand.
