Bush to Tell Saddam: Leave or Face War

President Bush is expected to deliver Saddam Hussein an ultimatum when he addresses the nation tonight (8 p.m. EST): go into exile or face an imminent U.S. attack. The United Nations orders its personnel out of Baghdad. And Europeans are dismayed that war has apparently overtaken diplomacy. NPR's Vicky O'Hara and NPR's Sylvia Poggioli report.
