The Washington Post reported Wednesday on the Army's history of the July 2008 Battle of Wanat in Afghanistan. Post reporter Greg Jaffe saw an early draft of that history in the summer of 2009, and he reports that it's markedly different from the final version that was released late this year. NPR's Robert Siegel talks to Jaffe for more on that story.
