Talking Afghanistan and Pakistan With Chris Murphy

May 6, 2011

Last week, while he was in Afghanistan, Congressman Chris Murphy saw a wanted poster for Osama Bin Laden in the special ops command center.

Now, that poster’s down - but Bin Laden’s death doesn’t clean up the messy history of US involvement in Afghanistan, or the rocky relationship between the US and Pakistan.  We’ve heard this week that top officials in that country didn’t know Bin Laden was hiding out so close to the capital...

Today, where we live, Chris Murphy reports on what he saw during his trip, what Bin Laden’s death means for the war effort, and how we should proceed in Pakistan.

We also hear from a Kazim Alam, a young Pakistani journalist studying in Connecticut.
