Embedded with U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

A team, along with journalist Nick Paton Walsh, embedded with U.S. troops at Combat Outpost Pirtle – King in Afghanistan. You'll see what day to day life is like for these soldiers fighting a war, but you'll also see what it's like to face the ultimate adrenaline rush as they encounter deadly gunfire.

While the CNN team was there covering fighting from the side of the troops, they came perilously close to bullets raining down upon their camp.

    So how about Keith Olberman’s great rantigs Yes the rantigs are great because Last time I looked Obama won in a landslide against Fixed News candidates. Tell us how come Fixed News candidates lost to Obama if their rantigs are so great?Oh I hear Glenn Beck got fired and is in a basement somewhere. Don't believe those rantigs because they are imaginary.

    I saw Georgia Rules a movie that takes a serious look at how seaxul abuse impacts a girl and a family. First time I have ever seen anything close to a public exposure. Men I think have the most difficult time in terms of being able to talk about it and yet more and more today it's impacts are being seen I cannot remember the Canadian Hockey Players name who has come forward to talk about his abuse by a coach in the NHL but I think there is a turning of the tide coming for all those who sit suffering in silence the truth will set you free. Thank you for sharing Douglas Norman.
