Iraqi Politicians React to Battles

NPR's Philip Reeves in Baghdad reports the ongoing battles between American troops and Iraqi insurgents are taking a toll on the U.S.-appointed Iraqi governing council. One council member has suspended participation and several others have threatened to resign in protest over the offensive by Marines in Fallujah and the battles between U.S.-led forces and supporters of a radical Shiite Muslim cleric.
