Covering the Afghan War: Murray Brewster
In every war there are always two fronts with the soldiers on the front lines and the politicians in the backrooms. Separated by geography and complicated by security. Few journalists can keep track of both sides of that fight. Today we bring you the perspective of a reporter who did. Murray Brewster argues that Canada's war in Afghanistan over the last decade was at times a two-pronged assault, one on the Taliban, another on public opinion back home. He shares his perspective on the political and military battles in a long and Savage War.
