Greg Mortenson On Bill Moyers: A Better Path To Peace In Afghanistan (VIDEO)

The U.S. has committed up to 30,000 more troops to the escalation of the war in Afghanistan. Greg Mortenson, the author of the new book "Stones into Schools," believes that there's a better path to peace.

After working in the region for 17 years, Mortenson argues that building schools and nurturing local communities is the way to win the hearts and minds of the Afghan population and end our long occupation of the country.

He discusses with Bill Moyers his efforts to build schools in some of the most remote and dangerous regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
