Looting Decimates Iraq Museum Collection

The looting of Iraq's National Museum is so extensive that curators say it will be easier to catalogue what remains than to document what was stolen or destroyed. Museum staff are bitter that American troops were only a few hundred yards away when the looting started, but did nothing to stop it. NPR's Anne Garrels reports.
