We talk to BBC defense and Security correspondent Nick Childs about details of a leaked report from the top commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan on troop levels there.

Then we speak to New Yorker correspondent George Packer about his profile of veteran diplomat Richard Holbrooke. Holbrooke cut his teeth in Vietnam and won acclaim for his negotiations in Bosnia. Now, Holbrooke faces what may be the definitive challenge of his career: the war in Afghanistan.
