Kerry Says Bush Lacks Credibility on Iraq

In a speech to the United Nations Tuesday, President Bush defended his decision to launch the war in Iraq, and asked for help with reconstruction there. Sen. John Kerry says the president has snubbed the U.N. too many times and lacks the international credibility needed to rally other nations to the cause. NPR's Scott Horsley reports.
