Turkey's Parliament Authorizes Military Incursion into Iraq

Hosted by

The Turkish parliament today gave the government permission for military action against separatist Kurds in northern Iraq. The action came moments after President Bush's press conference, during which he stressed that "there's a better way to deal with the issue than having the Turks send massive troops into the country."
