Open up the Afghanistan War Media Debate

Public support for the Afghanistan war continues to drop.

Casualties mount.

So why is NBC's Meet the Press giving viewers a parade of hawkish pundits and military officials?

If you haven't already done so, please join FAIR's call to broaden the debate on the war on the most-watched Sunday morning chat show.

And while you're at, RethinkAfghanistan is asking people to sign a petition to CBS anchor Katie Couric to ask tough questions of Gen. David Petraeus.
