Is Iraq 'Calming Down'?

In a recent interview with NPR, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said the situation in Iraq "continues to calm down." But a recent report from The Boston Globe shows the rate of American casualties in Iraq actually rose in July, after the transfer of sovereignty. NPR's Steve Inskeep discusses the situation in Iraq with Michael O'Hanlon of the Brookings Institute.
