When we last spoke to Robert Fisk asserted that there was no international coalition against terrorism. What did exist was the United States fighting a war against its personal enemies. Fisk has never been one to follow the company line. In his 25 years of covering the Middle East, Robert Fisk has won several major journalistic awards, but few popularity contests among Western leaders. Tonight, Robert Fisk joins us once again to analyze the campaign in Afghanistan. As U.S. Marines have landed on Afghan soil in pursuit of Osama bin Laden and the Northern Alliance continues to take control of former Taliban strongholds, Fisk says everything may not be as rosy as most Americans see it.
