We have breaking news out of Afghanistan where Anderson is reporting live from tonight. There are growing allegations of voter fraud in the country's presidential election last month. That led to some surprise action from the U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan today. We'll have that for you and more.

    I hope Afghanistan can handle a possible run off election if it comes to that.

    Sanjay's report brings home the violence and trauma of this war. Isn't it possible to bring the Taliban in Afganistan into negotiations at some pt?

    Certainly makes you think about the danger that people in the military are in everyday.
