Seven dead in Bagram riots after US officials scorch Koran
Seven people are now dead after thousands of Afghans rioted in the streets just outside the US air base in Bagram, Afghanistan on Tuesday. Tires burned and protesters hurled rocks at the base after word got out that US military personnel burned copies of the Koran.

Gareth Porter, investigative journalist and historian, joins us to discuss Americans foreign policy in Afghanistan.
