DEA Agents Killed in Helicopter Crash in Afghanistan

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Three agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and seven soldiers were killed when two NATO helicopters collided in the western part of Afghanistan yesterday. One helicopter was returning from a firefight provoked by an anti-narcotics mission. We speak with Gretchen Peters, author of "Seeds of Terror," a book that traces the links between Afghanistan’s drug trade and the Taliban and al-Qaida insurgents.
