The United States government set aside $5 million for the households of civilian casualties in the war on the Islamic State.

There have been thousands of civilian casualties. So why has the money gone untouched?

On today’s episode:

Azmat Khan, an investigative reporter who spent the previous year seeking into civilian casualties in the war on the Islamic State.

Background reading:

An investigation by Ms. Khan and Anand Gopal concludes that the U.S.-led battle against the Islamic State could be the least transparent war in current American history, with civilian deaths occurring at a rate far more than 31 times than that acknowledged by the coalition.
