Episode Summary

October 16, 2011 - Running the War, The Life and Death of Vincent van Gogh

Scott Pelley talks to General John Allen, the man in charge of the war in Afghanistan, which hits the 10 year mark. As guerrilla tactics are still exacting a high human toll, Gen. Allen says that some U.S. troops will need to be there longer than most Americans thought.

In a double length segment, Morley Safer looks at the troubled life of artist Vincent van Gogh through the eyes of Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, whose exhaustive investigation produced the biography Van Gogh: The Life. The authors say their research strongly indicates van Gogh may not have taken his own life.
