Hosted by

The latest US strategy against the Taliban calls for winning the hearts and minds of the Afghan people. But complaints of election fraud threaten the credibility of President Hamid Karzai, and contractors guarding the US embassy have shocked Afghan sensibilities. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, we update developments in what's called "Barack Obama's war."  Also, Pfizer gets the largest fraud fine in healthcare history, $2.3 billion for illegal marketing of drugs. On Reporter's Notebook, southern California's supermarket launch a price war as grocery chains try  to win back shoppers looking for better deals.
