Excellent interview. Great job.
The biggest problem is the establishment of a National Police of Iran capable of maintaining peace in the country. A bigger problem than capturing Osama bin Laden. The national order of Iran should be maintained and the fundamentalist groups (like the Taliban) can not come back to power. This will be a great long-term work. When it completes successfully the president Barack Obama will deserve his Nobel Peace Prize, he received the medal ahead of time but surely he deserves.
Congrats Christiane! This is by far my favorite interview since the program started and I know that getting this exclusive interview with a decision maker on the ground in Afghanistan shaping the war everyday was very important to you. There will always be questions you didn’t get to ask or wish you would have followed up on more, but on the whole, I think this interview did more for explaining exactly what this new troop surge entails and how it will be carried out on the ground than any other. The key point Gen. McChrystal made is that nation building, “...is not a product delivered, but a process enabled.” Also, I think it was interesting that he commented on the lessons learned in Iraq and that the US military is approaching this war with more “maturity,” meaning how they develop and maintain good relations with Afghan citizens have become more competent and evolved. It was broadcast live here in the US, with commentary afterwords, and many promos showing for the Sunday broadcast, so your aim to bring back very important international news to the forefront is succeeding brilliantly. Keep up the amazing work that you do, and we will all be watching to see where this story takes us next!
