With John King anchoring State of the Union from Los Angeles today, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff took it upon himself to use the Magic Wall to describe the situation for U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.

CNN producer Josh Braun trained Admiral Michael Mullen to use the wall and he not only switched the graphics but also telestrated the maps. CNN says it’s the first time someone of Admiral Mullen’s stature got interactive with the wall as part of a segment.
