Robert Siegel talks with Patricia Goshen, an adjunct professor of human rights issues at both Georgetown University and the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Gossman has been in e-mail contact with people in Afghanistan's capital, Kabul. She says some people believe the Northern Alliance — the main opposition to the ruling Taliban — may be on the way back to power.
