9:18 am
a watermelon emotions by the shaft. a movie i saw of the hour here in cambridge where the. club was. not alive. so i don't measure how you know. i mean name kids are the same post-traumatic stress this hour. he and his colleagues treat anyone affected whether civilians soldiers or even taliban fighters. the dinner i might have drawn isn't a given get. a moderate islamist government like a talking would but. as kind of a joy to get she'd know that young miss him said in my room that i could have junk as a. young young. woman i said after. her recovery show me from a doctor what you're going to have in the what about head you know it by age
9:19 am
because it ties in with you this introduction and we're. at the time. with nine years of the story. you know moving a caution. white near the source make of the rang me with the mission. can good god knew all the. time no hope could stand around us as you probably. could have just. because you are special. they are still there you tell the ranger don't notice. dr lee new takes najibullah quraishi to the regional government hospital in mazar which is one of only a handful in afghanistan that also has a mental health club. there are no m.r.i. or c.t. scanners for diagnosis but most care here is free mr wright want us.
9:20 am
to hold up right one is after the mother which i'm sure my journey has a vision you can see. why me a magazine about the future i see i am sure i'm who bowed to she's on her last. holiday. but there is a shame and social stigma associated with mental health which means many are reluctant to seek help. in such a conservative society families don't want their loved ones to be seen by friends or neighbors in a psychiatric ward. you. can only raise kids are some of the news business. mr shulman the she's the one you don't need but i hope. you are the get out of this one and not you're going to doctor be sterile where you'll be stuck i mean what does it mean american way to get the fish when mission control and what a felony that needed was a lot of mostly by the capacity of costco deal as and they did much like
9:21 am
a softener we saw just but the one i. left the way google bottles in a magazine look as softeners in the game was like madeline one yet you'll be given to me jan oh by the time you ignore my past. the fighting and bombing still rages in many regions here according to the united nations around three quarters of civilian deaths are the result of insurgent attacks and three percent by coalition forces. retired u.s. air force general david dipped to love the man who introduced the drone program two of his stun claims they're the safest form of modern warfare. there is plenty of evidence. in fact evidence that has been monitored and
9:22 am
provided by the united nations that contrary to popular perception remotely piloted aircraft drone operations result in the greatest perceived and least amount of civilian casualties than any other means of force employed if you take a look at the last un reports regarding civilian casualties in afghanistan over the last several years they attribute less than one percent of civilian casualties to the use of drones. but this doesn't take into account the mental anguish of drones flying over your village or town. but i don't seem to know them so i communicate well thank you. for that while fighting me when i can it killed off most of the young don't. need get on as you said they couldn't even and. if i don't you know what you mold to get the television the
9:23 am
mission. figures from u.s. central command show that from two thousand and eight to two thousand and twelve there were around a thousand drone attacks a thirty six thousand armed drone flights averaging twenty five a day people never know when one might drop a bomb. reports and. visit the site of a drone bombing in wonder how the. provinces on the pakistan border are all from targeted because taliban fighters are known to hide out here. children are now told intends to this school was totally destroyed. and we're going to know how i'm going to get up there with. the drones killed thirteen taliban fighters who sought the refuge in the school during a firefight. a night watchman also died. the
9:24 am
other watchman hi out was the only survivor. i knew and you don't cut her from. the roof and out of the well you. know if you want to get if you want to have an owner for the elderly that you know that are tough. and that you can have here that i wouldn't ever want to live in a better political wonderful gulf of motherhood that you get if you like you know. the thing about you know your own if ever the feeling that you. know what i you know you want to get in but that i do look at notably for a little bit with. a little bit of. gravity of looking that good how do you deal with an over three and. a bomb from a drone both the battle to a close. look them over the weekend to what is really kind of you know you are in
9:25 am
a way you're one of the you know one of another. after the attack afghan soldiers found high at school unconscious they handed him over to the americans. they said i was alone but i. have to go. no more to get it under their name but you get. no letter rather than. being told you are being taken to bog down is enough to frighten anyone in afghanistan. the largest u.s. run airfield and detention center in the country it has been associated with allegations of torture and human rights abuses. i think it was going to go without . but look better than anything you feel that everyone should feel like i'm going to do i'm going to look. at that you. know that. you know you want to look at it.
9:26 am
but not you can begin to look at them and. not this video was filmed but the tunnel by and the immediate aftermath to only one of the commanders killed inside the school witnessing the bloodshed has left high at school with classic symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. but i'm not going to go over those who were meant for me when i get my ged when i get where you're going to go to for some of. that nobody had any. need don't you want to thank you i don't know i'm a failure i don't know how you have ended up. going to this and i want to you know there's so many people you know he doesn't know that you a lot of if you're proud of what drew she i want you with a direction but you know. national get it. the reason those drones are there is to assist the innocent civilians
9:27 am
not to harm by the way the average missed distance of an artillery round is about a thousand feet the most accurate mortars average missed this tense around three hundred feet and in fact remotely piloted aircraft drones because of their number one defining characteristic and that's persistence allows us to provide the greatest degree of ethical oversight and for season when weapons are actually being used than any other means of force application at a distance. but others are critical of a system that allows bombs to be dropped on off console bites. people sitting in command centers up to seven thousand miles away. i think the worry is is the technology enabling an attitude that war is
9:28 am
somehow both precise i.e. no mistakes and easy i.e. no consequences or at least no consequences for me that's a very slippery slope because it makes it easier to undertake decisions that should be weighed with the most serious consequences. like so many in afghanistan i at school is too poor and too far from a hospital to get treatment. but as not to block way she discovers some families will do almost anything to try to cure their loved ones taking them to shrines but those in charge use bizarre methods to cure them. by stop people or war on chain. six locks on their feet some other.

9:48 am
a few minutes she had been beaten to death by the furious crowd. the incident caused unprecedented protests throughout the country and international outrage. the police were unable to say for come the nevertheless najibullah quraishi decides to confront the regional chief of police for eastern afghanistan about the me ali baba shrine. and fellow. american but my. mother was in the wimpy hand of the muslim well. as all of my denise then as one bishop in economy if. only i could manage to know how come i asked as how this subject question well lead to either me or can give. mislead shopaholic want to show us a planet about her that she. had been due to the torch himself in my mom and i will

9:50 am
my. shared goal forth with the majority dean against the russians in the one nine hundred eighty s. but his family say it was the more recent attack on his convoy and subsequent bombing by drones the triggered his mental illness. a social value for what. they have a. point you know they'll move there. and . that kind of. man who we need to. share cool was once the respected head of the family bringing up his younger

9:52 am
don't know what you mean the people you go to. they would be out there watching. that i think. i want to be with. my. the effects of the war and the bombs are etched on people's faces everywhere yet there is no end in sight and drones are seen as the way forward not only but the u.s. at least eighty different countries right now on the formal military side have drones are using them within their military it is a technology that has gone from being science fiction to abnormal to the new normal
9:53 am
of both war but also all the rest of civilian life the iraq war three point zero is a great illustration of the proliferation of drones and that every single actor and the fight from the u.s. military to the iraqi military to the iraqi militias that are really are rainy and to isis are all using drones. i'm not worried about the exploitation of aircraft around the world because ninety eight percent of the use of drone operations does not involve the use of force is there to provide oversight overwatch increase the knowledge of what's going on in an area so that operations can be conducted in a much more precise fashion. they keep using drones they did then to stop that and they are
