Reporter Nagieb Khaja gains unprecedented access to the Taliban as they launch an attack on an Afghan National Army Base in Charkh District, just an hour outside of the Afghan capital Kabul.
Khaja follows a dawn raid as the Taliban pound the ANA base with rockets and machine guns. He witnesses suicide attackers attempt to enter through the main gates. ISAF planes circle overhead, and Khaja is concerned that they will engage. He watches the Taliban deal with losing men and interviews a local Talib about what he does when he’s not engaged in warfare.

"On the Front Lines with the Taliban" gives a rare look into the internal workings of the Taliban and illustrates some of the issues facing the Afghan National Army as the U.S. withdraws its troops.
