Spanish Leader Reasserts Plan to Leave Iraq

Spain's new leader reiterates his pledge to withdraw troops from Iraq, saying Tomahawk missiles and bombs are not the way to defeat terrorism. Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, whose Socialist Party defeated Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar's ruling Popular Party in Sunday's elections, repeated his claim that the occupation of Iraq is a fiasco. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports.
