Despite Attacks, Officials Insist Iraq Vote Will Go On

NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with NPR's Mike Shuster about elections in Iraq, which are set for the end of January. Both U.S. and Iraqi officials insist the elections will go forward as scheduled on the 30th, despite deadly insurgent attacks intended to intimidate voters from going to the polls.
