Is the US military responsible for Dasht-e-Leili massacre?

December 2, 2011

Since the war on terror began one of the worst atrocities happened this month ten years ago. The Dasht-e-Leili massacre was under the control of General Abdul Rashid Dostum, a US ally and Afghan warlord, who had been given control of thousands of Taliban prisoners by US forces. Witnesses say thousands suffocated to death after being packed into metal containers or were shot to death. Andrew McEntee, human rights lawyer, joins us to revisit the tragic event and discuss what really happened.
