Tonight, there are several new developments tonight in the showdown between Georgia and Russia. U.S. Secretary of State is headed for the former Soviet republic with a new cease-fire plan. And, there is loophole in the current document. According to a senior State Department official close to the negotiations, the new plan would allow Russia to keep some troops in Georgia. But, Rice plans to try to close that loophole in talks with the Russians. All this as U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates weighed in on the crisis today saying if Russia doesn't pull back "the U.S.-Russian relationship could be adversely affected for years to come." And, as backdrop to all the diplomatic moves, Russian tanks and troops continue to worry the Georgians. Georgia's president says Russian troops control one-third of his country.
