Rumsfeld Reinforces U.S. Commitment to Iraq
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Gen. Tommy Franks tell a Senate committee that attacks against U.S. forces in Iraq are increasing. But they insist that the United States will stay in Iraq as long as it takes to stabilize the country. Senators from both parties urge the Pentagon to be honest about the costs and dangers that commitment could entail. NPR's Tom Gjelten reports.
