Iraqi Envoy: Martial Law May Be Needed to Secure Country

Rend al-Rahim, the designated Iraqi Ambassador to the United States, says the country's new government is considering instituting martial law after the handover of power to the Iraqis Wednesday. But Rahim says that despite the transfer, many security issues will be treated in the same manner as when the country was under the Coalition Provisional Authority. Hear NPR's Andrea Seabrook and Rahim.
