Sept. 11 Panel Urges Rice to Testify

Members of the commission investigating U.S. security efforts before the Sept. 11 attacks urge National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice to give public testimony to the panel. The panel's chair, former New Jersey governor Thomas Kean, says the inquiry's importance should override the Bush administration's claims that Rice cannot testify due to a separation of powers. NPR's Libby Lewis reports.
