North Korea and the Bush Administration

Steve speaks with NPR Diplomatic Correspondent Mike Shuster on the current diplomatic standoff between North Korea and the United States. The Bush administration is not directly negotiating with President Kim Jong Il but last week, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson met with high-level North Korean envoys to try to work around the stalemate.
