Tour Extension for Troops in Afghanistan

Hosted by

Twenty-two hundred Marines who were scheduled home in October, will have to stay in Afghanistan for as much as thirty days longer. That announcement came a day after Admiral Mike Mullen, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he needs more troops in Afghanistan but doesn’t have them—because of Iraq.  David Wood, national security correspondent for the Baltimore Sun, was imbedded with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit and broke the story that their tour would be extended.
