House Approves Iraq Aid Package

The House approves President Bush's $87 billion request for new spending in Afghanistan and Iraq. The funds, aimed mostly at supporting U.S. troops in those countries, are likely to pass in the Senate Friday night. The lopsided vote in favor of the aid request belies weeks of debate over the spending measure and the U.S. presence in Iraq. NPR's David Welna reports.
