Over 20 Years, Correspendent Meets Russians, Mujehedeen and Taliban In Afghanistan
A conversation with the longest serving foreign correspondent in Afghanistan. He has traveled in the country when the Soviets were fighting. He spent time with the Mujahedeen and watched the rise of the Taliban and the invasion by U.S. Forces in 2001. He no longer files stories and has begun to do contract work in the country saying that he's well equipped to operate in a war zone. He has written a memoir about his work called "Hot Steel."
Hear the full audio from this interview on The Story's website. Also in this program: we hear from soldiers in Afghanistan about the equipment and personal items they carry.
