There were two more 'green on blue' attacks by Afghan troops on U.S. and coalition forces. And the U.S. military has seen active-duty and veteran soldier suicides more than double since last year. Jeffrey Brown talks to Time magazine's Mark Thompson on the situation in Afghanistan, and suicides increasing as deployments decline.
