This week on War News Radio, we speak with two Iraqi refugees – one who’s been waiting for two years to make it to the US, and another whose life here has been such a struggle that he bought tickets home. Hansi Lo Wang, Abdulla Mizead and Emily Hager report.
Then, we hear from one of the architects of the surge in Iraq about the reasoning behind the troop build up in 2007, and what will happen when US forces withdraw. Elizabeth Threlkeld reports.
Finally, we find out how an influx of Iraqi refugees has shaped one neighborhood of Damascus, and the lives of those who call it home. Gabriel Ramirez reports.
