Senator Joe Manchin: 'I don't think we can build a nation in Afghanistan'

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin got into a heated exchange with Senator John McCain yesterday on the Senate floor over troop withdrawal plans in Afghanistan.

Manchin took the floor to show support for a hefty troop pullout given the nation's fiscal constraints. McCain subsequently challenged Manchin's opinion by questioning his credentials on the issue.

Senator Manchin joins Kiran Chetry this morning to discuss his opinion on the troop withdrawal and the future of US involvement in Afghanistan.
