Rangel: Revive Draft, Weigh Cost of War

U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) will propose that the military draft be reinstated so that every American must consider the human cost of ousting Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. Rangel, a military veteran, opposes a strike against Iraq. There appears to be little support in Congress for his draft plan. Rangel speaks with NPR's Juan Williams.
