Probe: Saddam Stole $10 Billion from Food Program

U.S. government investigators say Saddam Hussein illegally raked in more than $10 billion while Iraq was under U.N. sanctions. Officials tell members of Congress that Saddam made money by violating the rules of the oil-for-food program, smuggling oil, adding surcharges and collecting kickbacks. NPR's Andrea Seabrook reports.
