E311, O. Panel Session 7—Sunday 3:00 p.m. – 4:50 p.m.

A look at some specific revelations about the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen and the importance of getting this information to the public:

* A secret US Task Force 373 is assigned to nighttime hunter-killer raids in Afghanistan
* The US ambassador in Kabul says it is impossible to fix corruption when our ally is the corrupt
entity
* US Special Forces and ground troops operate in Pakistan without public acknowledgement,
apparently in violation of that country’s sovereignty;
* The US ally, Pakistan, is the chief protector of the Taliban in Afghanistan
* Following secret US air strikes against suspected al-Qaeda militants, Yemen's President Ali
Abdullah Saleh told General David Petraeus, "We'll continue saying the bombs are ours, not
yours."
