Scouting out southern Afghanistan

CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr is traveling with the U.S. military all week in Afghanistan and reports that advance teams are already pre-planning for the additional troops in southern Afghanistan.

Starr talks with CNN Radio's John Lisk on what she's seen so far, the logistics of military transport (and the airport security you still have to go through), the fiercely independent people of the Panjshir Valley and what troops on the ground think about the strategy.

    As long as the troops are There to make things better for Their Country & People... I'm 100 percent for it... But if We have to keep Our Troops there for now on I'm not!!! I feel that the President is going the right way of doing it... But that is My Opinion!!!
