A new study on counter-insurgency in Afghanistan says Pakistan's government has been providing support for some militant groups on the Afghan border, and that the groups have used information about U.S. forces to their advantage.

Co-host Steve Inskeep talks to Seth Jones, author of the Rand Corp. study.
