This week on War News Radio, we dip into our archives and put together a few of our favorite pieces from the past spring.

First, we hear from two Iraqi refugees – one who has been waiting for two years to come to America, and another who has been considering going back to Iraq. Hansi Lo Wang, Emily Hager, and Abdulla Mizead report. Read the transcript here.

Then, we speak with a leading advocate for women’s rights in Afghanistan. Madeleine Abromowitz and Emily Hager report.

We also check in on the current state of the Iraqi Air Force. Jess Engebretson and Elizabeth Threlkeld report. Read the transcript here.

Finally, we learn about one American’s efforts to bring scouting back to post-Saddam Iraq. Kyle Goeckner-Wald reports.
