A U.S. military delegation arrives in Turkey to inspect sites that could be used by American troops in a possible war against Iraq. But Turkey says it will wait to hear from the U.N. Security Council before making a decision on allowing U.S. troops. NPR's Bob Edwards talks to Faruk Logoglu, Turkey's ambassador to the United States.
