The BackStory of the Kandahar bombing

In the aftermath of  a Kandahar car bombing, CNN's Michael Holmes takes us to the scene as Afghan forces sift through the rubble to find the injured - and some tell him he shouldn't film. More at BackStory

    I love how the only way you let people view this media is through film. The very form of media in concern. Hey just an idea, but since you're in another country maybe you should respect them enough to NOT piss them off- thereby making them more angry at OUR soldiers.

    I would like to see and hear what Michael is doing with the 293D Mp Co. My son Stephen Butler is in that Co. 1st platoon, FOB Walton.

    Backstory is a show on CNN, not a channel. M-F 5-5:30 ET and 12:30a-1a ET.

    It's really weird that this isn't on the front pages anywhere.

    If you don't have CNNI you can go to cnn.com/backstory and watch clips of the show. You can also check them out on Facebook at facebook.com/backstorycnn

    It's a shame CNN USA doesn't carry BackStory & CNNI is not carried by all cable providers in the US. Some carry it on the upper tier. it's a really original show

    I hope your husband stays safe & comes home soon.
