Courtesy of Andrew Exum at the Center for a New American Security, here is "Behind Enemy Lines," a report for Australian TV by Norwegian journalist Paul Refsdal—who lived with an active Taliban unit as they prayed, ate, played with their families, ambushed US soldiers, and dodged AC-130 gunships in the dead of night.
