U.S. Raids Shia Political Group's Offices

U.S. forces seize documents, cash and arms in a raid on the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq. The leading Shia Muslim party claims the raid came in retaliation to the group's threatened boycott of an American plan to hand pick a new Iraqi advisory panel rather than allow Iraqi parties to elect one. NPR's Deborah Amos reports.
