David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times, joins Kerry Nolan to discuss President Obama's gameplan for troops in Afghanistan. Sanger explains two questions that the Obama administration must grapple with. First, how quickly will the president withdraw troops from the country, especially now that Osama bin Laden is dead? Second, Is Al-Qaida capable of carrying out another 9/11 style attack? Sanger also weighs in on former ambassador to China Jon Huntsman entering the 2012 race for the White House.
