Iraq Governing Council Holds First Meeting

The 25 representatives of Iraq's new Governing Council hold their first meeting in Baghdad -- an event one representative says puts "Saddam in the rubbish heap of history." The council members are appointed by U.S. officials, and Shiite Muslims have a majority of seats. NPR's Kate Seelye reports.
