Baathists Pose Problems in New Iraq Administration

NPR's Deborah Amos reports on the difficulties facing American officials trying to create a new civil administration in Iraq. One particular problem is whether and how to work with members of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party. Paul Bremer, the head of the U.S. civil administration in Iraq, has outlawed the Baath Party.
