A military hearing concluded Thursday at Barksdale Air Force Base, La. for two U.S. pilots charged with involuntary manslaughter. The men dropped a 500-pound bomb that killed four Canadian soldiers and wounded eight others last year in Afghanistan. The two pilots are now waiting to hear whether their case will proceed to a court martial. Brad Knickerbocker is covering the case for the Christian Science Monitor and joins Neal Conan to discuss this and other incidents involving friendly fire.
