Lieutenant General John Allen will face the Senate Armed Services Committee today. He's the man tapped to take over as the top U.S. Commander in Afghanistan, and he's backing the size and pace of President Obama's troop drawdown. The hearing comes less than a week after the President announced his plan to withdraw 33,000 troops by the end of 2012.
This morning on American Morning, we spoke with Major Rusty Bradley, a U.S. Special Operations soldier and the author of "Lions of Kandahar: The Story of a Fight Against All Odds." He joined the AM crew to talk about the challenges of fighting in Afghanistan.
