Reporter's Notebook Cindy Sheehan Does an About-Face on the Anti-War Movement 8 MIN, 15 SEC

Five acres of land in Crawford, Texas were put up for sale today by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq in 2004, captured the media spotlight when she camped outside President Bush’s Crawford ranch hoping to meet with him. She bought the land near downtown Crawford as a permanent site for protesters. However today she put up the 'for sale' sign and headed home for California, disillusioned with the cause she once championed.

Main Topic Iran and the U.S.; Nuclear Enrichment and Government Crackdown 20 MIN, 27 SEC

For the first time in twenty eight years, the United States sat down to official talks with Iran. The subject was the war in Iraq. Both countries agreed they shared a common goal of a stable Iraq, but there were many issues that weren’t on the table at the meeting including Iran’s continued defiance of the international community with its nuclear program. There is also the question of U.S.-Iranian citizens who have been detained during visits to their home country and were charged with espionage today. What is Iran’s agenda in the region, and how should the U.S. respond?
