Thank you to T. Christian Miller, Propublica, and the LA Times for this eye-opening report on wounded and killed translators in Iraq and Iran:
Last week I listened to President Obama's speech to the Nobel Committee arguing that US fighting in Afghanistan should be considered a just war.
Here's my question after reading this article:
Is a just war still just if the interpreters and others hired to fight it are treated unjustly?
I include our own soldiers in the category of those hired to fight, as well as all contracted workers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Along the lines of How much wood... :
Is a just war just
if the those paid to help
are just not treated justly?
