Remembering Charlie Wilson

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Rep. Charlie Wilson (D-Tex) died yesterday at 76.  A member of the House Appropriations Committee, Mr. Wilson was best known for funding CIA support for the mujahedeen in Afghanistan in the 1980s, and of course, the movie, "Charlie Wilson's War."  We hear about Charlie Wilson's legacy with Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich, and then with former CIA operative, Mike Scheuer.

Listen to former CIA operative Mike Scheuer, who knew Charlie Wilson:
