In Afghanistan, violence is plaguing the transition to total Afghan control of the war-torn country.
There was a suicide bombing just yesterday at a U.S. base, a U.S. contractor was killed in Kabul on Monday, and when Erin was in Kandahar just two weeks ago, a car bomb killed a U.S. service member only hours after she and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta left the base.
Author Sebastian Junger, one of the filmmakers behind the documentary Restrepo, has seen the violence firsthand. He's out with a new e-book called "A World Made of Blood," inspired by his own experiences in countries devastated by war.
Recently, Erin sat down with Junger and asked him whether journalists – having seen their deadliest year in 2012 – are specifically being targeted in these kinds of places.
