Live from Afghanistan: Ambassador Ryan Crocker
American forces will cede the lead role in combat operations in Afghanistan next year, but will keep fighting alongside Afghan troops, according to U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. U.S. troops would largely shift to a train-and-assist role as Afghan forces take responsibility for security before an end-2014 deadline for full Afghan control. U.S. Ambassador for Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, will join HearSay host Cathy Lewis, live from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul to talk about the latest as well as his upcoming visit to Hampton Roads this week.
Also joining Cathy, award-winning journalist, author and foreign-policy analyst Robin Wright. Wright is receiving the Third Annual Ryan C. Crocker Global Citizen of the Year Award program this year and will be honored by Ambassador Crocker Thursday, February 9th at a program in Norfolk.
