On September 20th, 2001, President George Bush told the American public to expect a lengthy campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan. In the eight years since, however, the war in Afghanistan has turned into a campaign longer and stranger than even those predictions. President Bush's initial resolve has given way to skepticism among many and has created a huge headache for President Obama. Charlie Sennott, executive editor of GlobalPost, joins us with a look back at Afghanistan over the past eight years, as well as current election news there. He has covered Afghanistan and the Taliban since the mid-nineties.
