Armitage: Iraqi Council Moving Towards Sovereignty

Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage says that although U.S. administrator Paul Bremer remains in charge in Iraq, the country's interim governing council is gaining more say in the daily decision-making process. His comments come amid growing calls from the international community that the U.S. speed up the handover of power to the Iraqi people. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Armitage.
