The Eyes of Afghans

Vice President Joe Biden turned his focus on Afghanistan this week. Stopping insurgent violence and extremism there is a top priority of the Obama administration.

Nasim Fekrat says Afghans have been through a lot, but they have trust in Biden. He's a young blogger who is writing to let the world know about the lives of ordinary people of Afghanistan, the people who dance and have love in their hearts. Nasim grew up during war and came of age during the Taliban takeover. He tells Dick Gordon about the Sufi mystic who opened his eyes to universal goodness, and why he believes so deeply in freedom of expression that he's willing to risk his life.
