Afghan Expatriates Take Stock after Ten Years of War

Hosted by

Ten years ago today, just a month after September 11, US military planes began bombing Taliban training camps in Afghanistan. Now, after $338 billion has been spent and 1780 American lives have been lost, one former US commander says the US and its NATO allies are "a little better than halfway" to achieving their goals. When Afghanistan's Taliban government fell to America's military power, many expatriates here in America flooded home, for various different reasons. For the Washington Post, Ernest Londoño has been reporting on how they feel now.
