Correspondent Paul Beban talks to Phil Lancaster, a career officer with the Canadian Armed Forces who has served in peacekeeping missions all over the world. His most recent role in the Congo was to help disarm and demobilize rebel factions. Lancaster talks about how his experience deployed with the U.N. during the Rwandan genocide dramatically changed him, the current challenges in Congo and Darfur, and the issues he says are overwhelming U.N. peacekeepers.
