Clayton Swisher Reporting from Afghanistan

Clayton Swisher is a reporter for Al-Jazeera English, but before he was that, he was the Director of Programs for the Middle East Institute (and author of The Truth About Camp David), so I consider his reportage sort of part of the extended family's news. He's embedded in Afghanistan and sent me a couple of links to reports, one December 21 northwest of Kandahar, the other December 22 in Helmand.

Merry Christmas, Clayton; Glad I'm Not There [Update: he e-mails he's back in Doha now]:

And thanks again to Al-Jazeera for being savvy enough to put their reports on YouTube and allow embedding. It gets their reportage a much broader audience.
