5/10/19 Chris Woods on the Civilian Casualties in Raqqa from US-led Airstrikes

Airwars’ Chris Woods joins the show to discuss the recent findings that coalition airstrikes recently killed over a thousand civilians in Raqqa. The UN also estimates that although most residents were able to escape the city, 70% lost all their property in the bombings. The casualty numbers are 10 times higher than what U.S. officials have admitted.

Discussed on the show:
