Alleged Saddam Tape Urges Jihad

Two Arabic-language satellite networks broadcast another audiotape allegedly from Saddam Hussein in which the ousted Iraqi leader calls on Iraqis to launch a holy war against occupying U.S. troops. U.S. forces are on high alert in anticipation of attacks tied to the anniversary of the Baath party's seizure of power in 1968. Hear NPR's Guy Raz.
