A harrowing report from The Intercept‘s on the selection of drone targets in Afghanistan, the horrendous results and the confusion and coverups that follow. Jeong investigates a strike that killed 14 men, women and children and the fate of the sole survivor; a terribly mutilated four year old girl.

  1. May Jeong’s writing is as beautiful as the story is horrendous. Thanks for sharing it.

    • A brave lady too. Even the US and Afghan military consider the area a no-go zone, but that didn’t stop her going there to get the story.

      It seems to me the best war zone reporting is increasingly being done by women. I guess that proves it’s a shit job.
