Robert Kerrey

The story of a former U.S. senator's involvement in the killing of women and children as a Navy SEAL in Vietnam may affect his ability to run as a candidate for president in 2004. In 1969, Robert Kerrey led a seven-man team in Vietnam that conducted a raid on what Kerrey says they thought was a Viet Cong meeting. He went on to receive a Bronze Star, and eventually became one of Nebraska's U.S. senators. Today, Linda Wertheimer speaks with former senator Kerrey about the story.
