Telling the truth to power shouldn’t take courage, but it certainly does. On part one, Peter VanBuren, whistle-blower and author of We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People, describes the major personal challenges government employees too often face in deciding to come forward with the truth.  On part two, celebrated author Nick Turse talks about his book: Kill Anything That Moves.

The young men who carried out the atrocities were also victims. Don’t we deserve the truth?
