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.
