Sorry to keeop this short, work beckons..
Nic Robertson's exclusive look inside the Taliban will be airing first at the International Desk today. It is a gripping, chilling and enlightening interview of a top Taliban spokesman in Afghanistan.
Check out Nic's blog entry below on what it was like interviewing a wanted man, whose organization holds so much power in a country the United States so desperately wants – and needs – to stabilize.
Also today, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak will be on the show. I haven't interviewed him in a while so it'll be interesting to get his take on the two-state issue. Netanyahu and his right-wing cabinet members don't seem keen on this idea anymore. But isn't the very backbone of any peace deal? The US is insisting on it. What will Barak say today?
Also, what about that UN report on abuses committed by the Israeli military in Gaza during the January offensive?
All that a more at 9pm CET.
See you on TV!
