Azmat Khan on How U.S. Hid Thousands of Civilian Deaths in Middle East Air War

U.S. air energy has been central within the nation’s wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and elsewhere, with officers promising that drones and different subtle weapons permit the U.S. navy to hold out precision airstrikes that spare civilians caught in warfare zones.

But a groundbreaking investigation by The New York Times reveals the U.S. navy’s air wars have been suffering from dangerous intelligence, imprecise focusing on and an absence of accountability for 1000’s of civilian deaths, lots of them kids.

The two-part collection by reporter Azmat Khan relies on a trove of inner Pentagon paperwork, in addition to on-the-ground reporting from dozens of airstrike websites and interviews with scores of survivors.

“What you have is a scale of civilian death and injury that is vastly different than what they claim,” says Khan, who spent 5 years on the investigation.
