Assessing our strategy in Afghanistan


afghanHour 1

Six months into a new strategy in Afganistan which sent an additional 30,000 troops into battle, there is increasing concern as to the pace of progress being made to uproot the Taliban. Complicating the debate is an interview Gen. Stanley McChrystal gave in which he criticized the Obama administration. We talk about our strategy in Afghanistan with ROBERT HADDICK of Small Wars Journal, journalist JAMES TRAUB and ANTHONY CORDESMAN, a military analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
