(Studio: Wolf Blitzer) Live discussion held with Defense Policy Board chairman Richard Perle, Center for Public Policy Education Lawrence Korb and Middle East Institution David Mack about the war in Afghanistan. [PERLE - says the United States can rely on the Northern Alliance; says if we crush the Taliban, Pashtuns from the south will join the coalition.] [MACK - says forces will be needed to fight in the southern Pashtun part of Afghanistan; says the taking of Mazar-i-Sharif will open up routes for the war.] [KORB - warns the alliance is not a cohesive force and has been waiting for the United States to do the work; wonders what a settlement in Afghanistan would be; indicates the Pentagon has underestimated the Taliban.]

Blitzer, Wolf
