Clinton Diplomat: Libya's WMD Decision Not Linked to Iraq

Martin Indyk, an assistant secretary of state during the Clinton administration, says Libya's decision to give up its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction was not prompted by the downfall of Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq, as claimed by the Bush administration. Libya, he says, offered to give up the weapons five years ago. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Indyk.
