Special Representative Holbrooke: I came to Marjah with my team, State department, NSC, Defense Department, Intelligence Community team, all the agencies. We came to Marjah because this is the front test of the strategy. I wanted to get a first hand report. Journalists are reporting various things, people who are working here are reporting various things, there is a lot of different points of view and I wanted to draw some conclusions from personal observation.
