QUESTION: Could I have a second with you? I know you're going to need more money for the Sudan.


QUESTION: I'm with Congressional Quarterly. I just wanted to check in with you. I know you guys are going to need more money for Sudan --

SECRETARY POWELL: I'm going to do what?

QUESTION: You're definitely going to need more money for Sudan. I'm wondering if you have any idea when you're going to be able to make that request from Congress.

SECRETARY POWELL: No, we've got funds now and we don't have an estimate. And I don't have an estimate for a time yet.
