Afghans fighting back, one town at a time

President Obama will meet today with his top commander in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, and America's ambassador to Kabul, Karl Eikenberry.

As the president's war strategy starts falling into place, our Barbara Starr is already on the ground, embedded with U.S. forces.

Today she has the story of one village where Afghan forces are fighting back against the Taliban, and winning. It's a story you won't see anywhere else.

    Once the Afghanistan's take their towns back from the Taliban with American support, the President would be wise to start to pull troops out of Iraq to lift the burden of war in that country from the shoulders of the American's fighting there as well as the wallets of each taxpaying American.
