Reporter's Notebook: Afghanistan

We had been to Camp Eggars the previous evening to interview the head of U.S. forces training Afghan security forces, Major Gen. Richard Formica. Ironically, the Public Affairs Officer had offered Saturday morning as a possible interview time, which means we could have been at the base when the bomb exploded. It turns out that the room where we had conducted the interview had its windows blown out and pictures knocked off their hooks. It seems as if security in the Kabul is spiraling downhill. Hopefully, through a combination of troop increases and shifts in military and political strategies and tactics, life for Afghans will improve.

We will be back to see for ourselves.
