Afghan President Hamid Karzai is calling for American troops to pull back as the Taliban cancels peace talks. What does this mean for the approaching withdrawal? Later on The Takeaway, we discuss the dearth of African-Americans in higher political office. By the end of 2012, there will be no more than two African-American governors or senators. Some predicted a wave of black politicians after Obama's election, but that hasn't come to pass. Also on the program, Adrien Brody joins us to discuss his new film "Detachment."
