American Military Policy Of Uncounted Civilian Casualties In Iraq


The Daily / New York Times (2017)

The American-led battle against the Islamic State has been hailed as the most precise air campaign in history. But its airstrikes have killed far more Iraqi civilians than anyone has acknowledged.

Basim Razzo, a resident of ISIS-occupied Mosul, lost his family and his home in one of these airstrikes. Video of the strike shows a target hit with military precision. Why was Mr. Razzo’s home targeted? And how often does this happen?

Uncounted Civilian Casualties in Iraq was produced by Annie Brown, with reporter Azmat Khan and edited by Lisa Tobin for The Daily.

Winner of the TC/RHDF 2018 Best Documentary: Honorable Mention Award.
