war on terror It killed nearly a million people and cost more than $8 trillion, according to a report from Brown University’s Costs of War Project. This week on The Intercepted: Journalists Mortada Hussain and Rozina Ali explain how the September 11 attacks have reshaped US foreign and domestic policies. In the past two decades, the United States has waged two wars that have killed and injured millions. There has also been a rise in the number of drones killing innocent civilians, the widespread use of domestic and international surveillance, the imprisonment of innocents, and the enduring human rights violations and war crimes. More recently, there was a turning point in the war in Afghanistan, with the Taliban regaining control of the country. Hussein and Ali pass through systemic failures across institutions—whether it be government, military leadership, or the press—and a lack of accountability.
