War Update

NPR's Mike Shuster reports from Central Command in Kuwait on the latest developments in Iraq. He tells NPR's Melissa Block about the apparent U.S. strategy for taking control of Baghdad, with the Army in the west and the Marines in the east. In the south, British officials say they control the city of Basra, but there is widespread looting.
