Analysts: Guerrilla War Could Be Brewing in Iraq

Pentagon officials say they still don't know what happened to two American soldiers who disappeared from their guard post in Iraq Wednesday. As attacks on U.S. and British forces continue, some analysts suggest a full-blown guerrilla war may be developing in Iraq. The Pentagon says the attacks may be coordinated but blames them largely on Saddam Hussein loyalists. NPR's Tom Gjelten reports.
