(Audio of Video)On the latest Fault Lines, Josh Rushing embeds with US troops on the front lines of Obama's war and examines if an Iraq-style "surge" could work in Afghanistan.
Watch video here:
As a candidate for the US presidency, Barack Obama staked much of his his campaign on the claim that the war in Iraq was a distraction from the "good war" against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Al Jazeera's in-depth look at the new president attempts to turn his pledges into action, US troops in Afghanistan currently seem confounded by an opponent whose roadside bombs and guerilla tactics have made this one of the US's deadliest wars. Local and regional support is waning, and US hopes for an exit strategy seem increasingly out of reach.
