Powell Urges Allies Not to Retreat on Iraq

U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell implores the international community to meet its responsibility to disarm Iraq, saying the burden is on Saddam Hussein to avoid war by accounting for "missing" biological and chemical agents. And he says at least a dozen nations would support a U.S.-led attack on Iraq. A report from U.N. arms inspectors is due Monday. NPR News reports.
