Obama, Karzai and the War in Afghanistan

Hosted by

Before this weekend's NATO summit, Afghan President Hamid Karzai told reporters he wants fewer foreign troops in his country to reduce what he called "intrusiveness" of the war against the Taliban into daily life.  After the meeting, President Obama said he'll have to settle for increased drone strikes and nighttime raids whether he likes it or not.
