A harrowing report about brutal fighting at a remote U.S. Army combat outpost on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan

With extraordinary access, correspondent Lara Logan and her team produced a striking eyewitness account from the border that has become the front line in America’s 10 year long war in Afghanistan. At the U.S. Army combat outpost, a few miles from the border with Pakistan, the reporting team witnessed some of the fiercest fighting yet in this conflict. Soldiers said that as fast as American forces could kill the enemy, new fighters appeared to pour across the border from sanctuaries in Pakistan. Under fire more than a dozen times during the two-week visit, Logan and her team offered an unsparing look at one of the biggest challenges facing the American military in Afghanistan.
