HOW MANY DIED IN THE WAR ON TERROR?
As the name might suggest, the Byline Times podcast is the podcast of the Byline Times - telling you what the papers DON'T say.
Byline Times writer Nafeez Ahmed has been calculating the number of civilians who died in the War On Terror that followed the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers. His conclusion is that 6 million people died, either directly or indirectly in countries as various as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. In this episode you can hear how he arrives at this starling conclusion - and what he makes of George W. Bush's insistence that he "did the right thing."
