Guest Moderator: Michel Martin of ABC News. Did the President know it was not true when he announced to the world that Iraq was buying nuclear materials in Africa? And what does this correction mean to the assessed threat Saddam Hussein posed to America? Martha Raddatz of ABC NEWS reports with the latest on the political and practical implications in this still-unraveling story. Now more than thirty days into the rebuilding of Iraq, American troops are still getting killed, with no real change on the horizon. Are our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines overextended? And what does that say about future missions, including assistance to the African nation Liberia. NPR's Pentagon correspondent, Tom Gjelten examines the plans and pitfalls of our troop commitments. Africa takes center stage as Charles Cobb of allAfrica.com reports on President Bush's whirlwind trip to that continent. AIDS, trade, economic stability, and internal conflicts were some of the missions. But what was accomplished, and what does this Presidential trip mean to the United States, the African nations and the rest of the world? Will California oust its Governor? The signatures are in; the decision for a recall election looms. Just back from a trip to the Golden State, Wall Street Journal's John Harwood fills in the blanks and also explains what this potential move means to national politics.
