Clip File: Obama should listen to Biden

"Vice President Joseph Biden is emerging as an important voice within the White House on the war in Afghanistan.

"The New York Times reported that during a meeting in the situation room on September 13, Biden urged the president to consider reducing America's troop presence in Afghanistan. Rather than embracing a mission to protect the Afghan population, the U.S., Biden reportedly said, should target al Qaeda cells in the region through special operations forces and targeted missile attacks."
