Around-the-world with the SecDef II
In part two of our trans-global trip with the secretary of defense [video link], we leave the genteel trappings of the Shangri-La Conference in Singapore.
We're heading to Afghanistan, where Gates reviews an Afghan commando unit, then meets with President Hamid Karzai. After a brief visit to the capital of Kyrgyzstan, we overnight in Paris on the eve of the secretary's speech at a D-Day ceremony in Normandy, France.
We traveled all around the globe on this trip and hopefully these two videos [watch part I, watch part II] give you a sense of some of the challenges we faced along the way.
Editor's note: Jim calls himself a "new media soul trapped in an old media body," and we tend to agree. Check out his online video production venture here and if you REALLY want to know what Jim's doing every minute, you can sign up for his Twitter feed.
