News Talk Online December 2, 2009: Obama's Afghan Policy And The Upcoming Gitmo 5 Trial

Award-winning foreign correspondent Stephen Kinzer was my first guest on News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network to talk about President Obama's decision to deploy 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan.

Kinzer says it was mainly a political - not a military decision. Far too few troops - far too little time - to complete the newly stated mission.

My second guest was retired FDNY firefighter Tim Brown, a leader of the effort to keep the Gitmo 5 trial out of New York City. We talked with Brown about the new revelation that neither President Obama nor Attorney General Eric Holder consulted with New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg or Police Commissioner Ray Kelly about the decision.
