Many of you may have seen NBC's Richard Engel this morning on Meet the Press. He was in our newsroom this afternoon and I was able to spend some time talking with him about the war in Iraq. Richard has been covering this story now for the past 4 years... a remarkable feat. He is one of the few people in the world who has had an up-close view of the war. Tonight, we will continue our conversation with Richard on NBC Nightly News... as he provides some context to the latest developments.
Today in Iraq... as the U.S. implements its new security plan... there was more violence in Baghdad. NBC's Jane Arraf is in Baghdad.
Also... NBC's John Yang will have more on the expected fight in Congress over funding the war.
