How helicopters play a vital role in Afghanistan
While the story has not gotten much airtime on CNN in the United States, embedded international correspondent Atia Abawi does an admirable job reporting on how the military's largest helicopters are being used in Afghanistan.
Abawi did a nice job letting the troops on the ground (or in this case, in the air) tell the story for the viewers. I was also surprised to learn that choppers are moving more material in Afghanistan than Iraq.
Good job here, CNN. Now all you have to do is give these stories the airtime they deserve, as well as prominent placement on your website, and do it on a consistent basis.
