Taking the Show on the Road... to Afghanistan

Getting a live news show on the air can be challenging, even under "normal" conditions. Going live from the hinterlands of Afghanistan - well, that's a whole 'nother story!

CNN's Anderson Cooper did just that, to mark the 8th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and the U.S. military campaign against the Taliban.

Well, this week's BackStory segment gave us a behind-the-scenes look at how the AC360 crew got there, and got it done. (All the cursing's bleeped, I promise.)

    One question for Anderson and the rest of our educated media people -- How about we pull out our soldiers (after all, they are trained to kill) and send in our diplomacy group? You know, Hillary and those 3 extra specialists she hired to "help" her do her job? Or maybe Obama himself can talk the bad guys out of their weapons?
