The War in Afghanistan is our longest war- 10 years. Only now are we - at home - really getting a picture, a visual picture, of this war. Last year there was the critically acclaimed documentary "Restrepo" by Sebastian Junger and the late Tim Heatherington. And now a documentary that opens today in Los Angeles called "Hell and Back Again", which follows a small marine corps team on a very dangerous mission in Helmand Province. Madeleine speaks with the director of the film, Dennis Darfung. Meghan McCarty has the latest installment of her "Weekend Alibi" and Luke Burbank joins us to wrap up the week's news.
