(Studio: Aaron Brown) The meeting at the Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan, prison of CIA agent Mike Spann and American Taliban fighter John Walker recalled. Discussion held with Hoover Institution research fellow Shelby Steele and "Washington Post" Richard Cohen about the Walker case and "cultural liberalism." [From Salinas, California, STEELE - says liberalism has affected an entire generation of young Americans with anti-Americanism that identifies with victimization.] [In studio, COHEN - says Walker is merely a fluke.]
