Marking 8 Years and more of U.S. wars in Pakistan and Afghanistan: Part I

Eight years after the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, and years into the U.S.'s
military campaigns in Pakistan, we'll discuss the toll these wars have
taken, why they remain under the radar in American public consciousness
and the mainstream media, and what we can anticipate going forward.
With Junaid Ahmad, member of the faculty of law at Lahore University
of Management Sciences in Pakistan.
