Thu, 01/03/2008

Host Per Fagereng interviews Conn Hallinan, columnist for Foreign Policy In Focus, about two of his recent articles.
In "Death at a Distance: The U.S. Air War," Hallinan says "an enormous intensification of U.S. bombardments" in Iraq and Afghanistan entails an "increasing number of civilian casualties ... and the growing role of pilot-less killers in the conflict."
