Afghanistan and the 'Civilian Surge'

Hosted by  • 

The President's escalation of force in Afghanistan will have a civilian component, although he's left it to others to explain the details. Is it "nation building" by another name? We hear about the hope for success and the risk of failure. General McChrystal and Ambassador Eikenberry go to the Hill to defend the President's plan, and experts on terror call this the most dangerous year in the US since 2001.
