Episode #4224

What a week it's been! War talk, preparations and saber rattling were all stepped up this week, from Yemen to Qatar, from Iraq to the United Nations. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times and Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio report. The Congressional Commission on 9-11 made their report this week. Michael Duffy of Time Magazine takes a look. And finally....The firestorm around the remarks by Trent Lott at Strom Thurmond's 100 birthday celebration. Gloria Borger of U.S. News & World Report and CBS News has that story. And to the hundreds of you who responded to Gwen's invitation to e-mail us about Trent Lott's observations, thank you, we read them all. You'll find some sample responses on our Web site.
