Kerry: America Faces 'Moment of Truth' in Iraq

Democratic Sen. John Kerry on Friday took his presidential campaign to Westminster College in the Missouri town of Fulton. The college was the site of the famous "Iron Curtain" speech by Winston Churchill in 1946 and, earlier this week, of an anti-Kerry speech by Vice President Dick Cheney. Kerry said America faces a "moment of truth" in Iraq, and he used the occasion to call on President Bush to broaden the international coalition in Iraq. NPR's David Welna reports
