News Talk Online September 18, 2009: Why Are We In Afghanistan

Award winning foreign correspondent Steven Kinzer was my guest on today's News Talk Online on to try to decipher the reasons why the United States and other NATO nations are still in Afghanistan.

Kinzer says the initial reason for going in - to find Osama bin Laden and the al Qaeda operatives responsible for the 9/11 attacks was laudable. But the invasion now suffers from "mission creep" and seemingly no one knows what the mission is any longer.
