Fionnuala Sweeney reports about the backlash against the raid that rescued NYT reporter Stephen Farrell but left his Afghan translator dead. Shockingly, his body was left behind, something that would not have happened had he been a Western journalist. Michael discusses the local response from the Afghan media and says that the British forces (who lost one of their own in the raid) are also discussing whether a rescue should have been mounted for a journalist.
