Massacre in AfghanistanDownload audio (MP3)
U.S. forces in Afghanistan have been warned of possible reprisal attacks following the killings of 16 civilians -- nine of them children -- allegedly by a lone U.S. serviceman. While the Obama administration says its war strategy in Afghanistan will remain intact, lack of trust on both sides complicates the future of this mission.
