This past Monday saw the deadliest “intentional” attack on Afghan civilians by the US since the start of the ten year long war in Afghanistan. An unnamed US Army staff sergeant walked a mile in the middle of the night to two different villages near his base in southern Afghanistan and murdered 16 civilians, including 9 children and 3 women.
Derrick Crowe, Political Director of Brave New Foundation, discusses how the strains of a ten year war has effected U.S. troops. Crowe also talks about how public opinion of the war has changed in the wake of the Great Recession.
