More Troops for Afghanistan: What Are They Going to Do?

Hosted by

During his presidential campaign, Barack Obama wanted to refocus the "war on terror" from Iraq to Afghanistan. Development of a coherent policy is a work in progress.  Richard Holbrooke, Obama's special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, is in the area now, and the President has said he wants more troops in Afghanistan. At last week's news conference, he hinted at what their mission might be.
