WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

On Wednesday, WMNF aired the first half of our interview with Laila Al-Arian. She is a former Tampa resident and the co-author of a report in the current issue of The Nation magazine that reveals disturbing patterns of behavior by U.S. troops in Iraq.

The article is co-authored by longtime war correspondent Chris Hedges and is called The Other War: Iraq Vets Bear Witness.

We begin the second half of this interview by asking Al-Arian whether service personnel who were assigned to guard convoys in Iraq behaved differently depending on whether the private contractors driving the convoy were Americans versus non-American.

Al-Arian Interview OQ “ … Its something I think should be investigated further.”

That was former Tampa resident Laila Al-Arian speaking to WMNF about the report she co-authored with Chris Hedges that can be found in the current issue of The Nation or online at
