Bush Defends Iraq War, Vietnam Service

In an interview on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday, President Bush said the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was necessary because Saddam Hussein had the capacity to develop nuclear weapons. Bush added he was confident he would be re-elected, and rejected charges, recently revived by Democrats, that he had abandoned his position with the National Guard during the Vietnam War. NPR's Pam Fessler reports.
