Wolfowitz Cites Examples of 'Real Disarmament'

As the Bush administration presses Iraq to divulge weapons secrets or face attack, Deputy U.S. Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz uses a speech in New York to describe what he calls "real disarmament." He cites South Africa, Ukraine and Kazakhstan as good examples of nations that have openly and voluntarily given up nuclear arms. NPR's Vicky O'Hara reports.
