'Left, Right & Center': Was Afghanistan Worth It?

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the possible accelerated withdrawal of Afghan troops announced by President Barack Obama after a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Was the war worth it?

A rocky road lies ahead for Obama nominees Chuck Hagel for defense secretary and Jack Lew for Treasury. If personnel are policy, where are the women? Joe Biden talks gun reform and the NRA doesn’t like it. Would a trillion-dollar coin be a great creative solution or a dark turn toward a banana republic?

Former chairman of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele, New York University Vice Provost Melody Barnes and host Matt Miller join Scheer on this week’s program.
