This week on War News Radio, we dip into the archives for a few of our favorite pieces from this Fall. First, we find out about the international effort to restore Iraq’s national museum, which was looted during the invasion.
Clare Kobasa and Sam Hirshman report.

Then, we hear about the problem of gangs in the US military. Kyle Goeckner-Wald and Alan Zhao have the story.

Next, we’ll look into the ups and downs of the Afghan Parliament, as its term comes to an end. Emily Hager and Emily Dolson tell us more.

Finally, we take a look at freedom of the press in Iraq, a country with a long history of censorship and press restrictions. Abdulla Mizead fill us in.
