Taliban back in town?

As President Obama is expected to announce in a speech Tuesday that 30,000 U.S. "surge" forces will be withdrawn from Afghanistan by the end of 2012, CNN's Nick Paton Walsh takes a look at one town in Afghanistan. A flag flies openly, the white banner of the Taliban. The message: we, the Taliban, are back in power here. Small Taliban fiefdoms are popping up while NATO's surge is at full strength, leaving many wondering what they'll do as NATO starts to leave?
