Some Former Baath Party Members to Regain Jobs

American occupation authorities will lift restrictions on tens of thousands of members of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party, who lost their jobs in government and the armed forces following the U.S. occupation of Iraq. Chief administrator Paul Bremer says lifting the restrictions will speed the process of rebuilding the war-torn nation. NPR's Philip Reeves reports from Baghdad.
