Saddam Rejects Bush Ultimatum

Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein rejects a U.S. demand that he and his sons leave Iraq within 48 hours or face "the full force and might" of the U.S. military. President Bush delivered the ultimatum in a prime-time speech, which drew mixed reaction from U.S. lawmakers. NPR's Mara Liasson and NPR's David Welna report.
