Turkey Closer to Sending Troops to Iraq

Turkey's cabinet approves a plan to send peacekeeping troops to Iraq. The Turkish parliament must first approve the move. Some 70 percent of the country opposes the measure. Turkey would be the first Muslim nation to provide troops to the U.S.-led operation in Iraq. NPR's Ivan Watson joins host Bob Edwards to discuss the plan.
