Coming Home from the Iraq War

Hosted by  • 

With American combat in Iraq now over, soldiers are coming home in unprecedented numbers.  We look at what can happen after the happy returns. Also, Afghan President Karzai criticizes troop the withdrawal time-line. On Reporter's Notebook, why didn't the crew on the Deepwater Horizon realize something was going wrong in time to prevent an explosion that killed 11 men and released oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 86 days.
