Reporter Opens Final Notebook From Afghanistan

The U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan ends this month and ending along with it, the NPR presence in Kabul. Reporter Sean Carberry is leaving Kabul just like most of the American troops are.

On Monday, the U.S. and NATO held a formal ceremony to mark the closing of their operational command center. Afghan security forces are supposed to take over January 1, but there will still be around 11,000 U.S. and NATO troops in the country and fighting is expected to continue.

Carberry joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to share his final reporter’s notebook from Afghanistan.
