Scott interviews journalist Kyle Rempfer about a piece he recently published in the Army Times. The article tells the story of Wahedullah Khan, an Afghan commando who was taken into custody in 2018 after firing on Czech coalition troops. Khan was first interrogated by Green Berets, then the Czechs, and finally Afghan National Army troops. During these interrogations, Khan was beaten to death. Rempfer explains that it’s been too difficult to pin the responsibility on anyone specifically enough to bring charges. But the involvement of Green Berets was enough to lead to disciplinary action.
