A report released by the Pentagon today brings bad news about the U.S. effort in Afghanistan. The biannual survey of Security and Stability in Afghanistan says there have been improvements in some areas, but that support for the Afghan government remains weak, with less than a quarter of the Afghan population in key districts supporting President Karzai's government.
The report comes ahead of a scheduled meeting between President Karzai and President Obama in Washington next month. Ian Pannell, Kabul reporter for the BBC joins us live from the Afghan capital.
