Iraq Comes to Crawford, TX

Download Audio
photoAt a press conference at his ranch in Crawford Texas, President Bush acknowledged there were lots of "rumors," but no decision has been made about whether or not the number of American troops in Iraq would change.

Troops' withdrawal has become the kitchen table conversation across the country and poll numbers say that the majority of Americans does not agree with the way the President is handling the war.

Meanwhile, Cindy Sheehan, whose son died fighting in Iraq, is still camped along the road outside the Bush ranch, pitting ordinary Americans against the most powerful man in the U.S.

Hear about the U.S. policy on Iraq coming to a head in Crawford, TX.
