Guest moderator: Michel Martin He apparent mistreatment of prisoners in Iraq continues to produce strong reactions throughout the government. From the president's interviews on Arab-language news outlets, to some congressional calls for Secretary Rumsfeld's resignation, the repercussions don't seem to be fading. Martha Raddatz, Pentagon Correspondent for ABC News and the Los Angeles Times' Doyle McManus assess the scope of the misdeeds and measure the widespread consequences as the story continues to unfold. Amid the ongoing headline-grabbing prison controversy, President Bush launched a bus trip in the Midwest and Democratic candidate John Kerry unveiled 25 million dollars in political ads in hopes of introducing himself to Americans and countering the Bush ad blitz of earlier this spring. Wayne Washington, White House reporter for The Boston Globe, and John Harwood of The Wall Street Journal take a look at the candidates' efforts to reach voters with resonant political messages.
