In this part of the show, we're going to hear about the debate on what the U.S. role should be in Afghanistan following the death of Osama bin Laden.
But first, there's been violence in Pakistan in retaliation for the killing of bin Laden there. This time, it was the suicide bombing at a police building in the northwest part of the country. Five policemen were killed, and 30 more wounded. The Pakistan Taliban claimed responsibility and promised more attacks to avenge bin Laden's death.
