Americans in Afghanistan: The Case of Specialist Dennis Weichel

The Takeaway
The story of Specialist Dennis Weichel  is deeply tragic but shows a side of U.S. troops in Afghanistan that we haven't heard about recently, with the Koran burnings, drone attacks killing civilians, and the case of Sergeant Robert Bales. Rod Nordland is the foreign correspondent for our partner the New York Times.
