Scott was joined by Stephanie Savell of the Cost of War Project to discuss her organization’s new report on indirect deaths in America’s post-9/11 wars. Savell’s research now points to between 4.5 million and 4.6 million indirect deaths that have already occurred in the countries affected by the wars as an indirect result of U.S. intervention. In this interview, Scott and Savell discuss the methods used, what constitutes indirect deaths vs. direct deaths and how the devastation differed from country to country.
