U.S. Snubs Sinn Fein Leader Gerry Adams

During his visit to the U.S. this week, Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams received a chilly reception from politicians and Irish-Americans. Sinn Fein's connection to the Irish Republican Army has brought international condemnation since the IRA was implicated in the Belfast bar murder of Robert McCartney. NPR's Mike Pesca reports.
