On the day that President Obama is set to announce a major troop increase and strategy change in the American war in Afghanistan, veteran journalist Dan Rather has just returned from reporting in eastern Afghanistan. Interviewing American soldiers, Taliban fighters and Afghan government officials, Rather paints the picture of a complicated country with no easy solutions. He was first in Afghanistan 30 years ago to report on the Afghan’s war against an invading Soviet army. What guidance does Dan Rather give to the President?
