4/27/18 Samuel Oakford on the Atrocities Committed in Mosul and Raqqa

Airwars reporter Sam Oakford returns to the show to discuss his latest work, “Raqqa: A City Destroyed Then Forgotten” and “They’re Still Pulling Bodies out of ISIS’ capital.” Scott begins by asking—what do we know about Mosul and the coalition assault to take the city back from ISIS? Oakford then details the challenge of calculating the death toll from the fight for Mosul, the monumental effort that remains to rebuild the devastation, and the atrocities committed by the Islamic State.
