The Administration prepares to make the case to Congress and the United Nations for war with Iraq. Michael Duffy of Time magazine reports. Will Congress be convinced? What do they need to hear and how much say do they want to have? Gebe Martinez of Congressional Quarterly has been following that story. Afghanistan remains unsettled. Can we just pull out and concentrate on Iraq? Can we manage wars in both places? Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio looks into that debate. And finally, September 10th is primary day in much of the country. What's at stake? Rick Berke of The New York Times sets the scene. [26 minutes]
