High Security for NATO Sessions in Turkey

Security teams are taking strict measures to ensure the safety of President Bush, who is in Turkey speaking with NATO leaders about the future of Iraq. So far, the procedures have included a helicopter ride that pre-empted the presidential motorcade. The added security has put a damper on protesters demonstrating against NATO and Bush's policies in Iraq. Hear NPR's Andrea Seabrook, NPR's Don Gonyea and the BBC's Jonny Diamond.

Andrea Seabrook
Andrea Seabrook covers Capitol Hill as NPR's Congressional Correspondent.
You're most likely to find NPR's Don Gonyea on the road, in some battleground state looking for voters to sit with him at the local lunch spot, the VFW or union hall, at a campaign rally, or at their kitchen tables to tell him what's on their minds. Through countless such conversations over the course of the year, he gets a ground-level view of American elections. Gonyea is NPR's National Political Correspondent, a position he has held since 2010. His reports can be heard on all NPR News programs and at NPR.org. To hear his sound-rich stories is akin to riding in the passenger seat of his rental car, traveling through Iowa or South Carolina or Michigan or wherever, right along with him.
