Explores key questions about U.S.-led military involvement in Afghanistan. Have the operations benefited or hurt the region? Should they continue? Is it possible for Afghans to have a democratic government, with free and fair elections, that would prevent warlords and religious leaders from dominating the country? And how - with the Taliban, terror cells, the drug trade, and a fledgling government and military - can Afghanistan be stabilized for the long term?
