Nick Turse on the Fog of War

Nick Turse, author of the New York Times bestseller Kill Anything That Moves (2013), visits us on
Wednesday, Feb. 19th.

In The Nation's Investigative Fund's "The Backstory" project (about the art and practice of investigative journalism), Turse talks about the challenges of collecting data on civilian casualties in war zones, and in particular the challenges of writing his feature article for the October 7, 2013 issue of The Nation, "America's Afghan Victims."
