War reporting

With the election in its final days, some of the mainstream media have gone back to do some war reporting. But this time they are in Afghanistan, particularly in the Korengal Valley, a Taliban and Al Qaida stronghold. It's a treacherous place where international troops are woefully undermanned. Vanity Fair has written two amazing stories about the Valley and now NBC's Richard Engel was in. You can see it here.

I have noticed FOX news has picked up the reporting a little bit with Bill Hemmer and another reporter currently reporting for Iraq.

CNN had a hit piece on Tuesday/Wednesday on Afghanistan where unfortunately we had a friendly fire fatality. Anything to defeat our troops from that network.
