May Jeong returns to the show to discuss her article for The Intercept, “Losing Sight” about a four-year-old Afghan girl, Aisha Rashid, who was the sole survivor of a drone strike in a remote village in Afghanistan. Aisha miraculously survived. Then she disappeared. Jeong goes in depth into her reporting, the horrors of drone warfare, and details the ISIS presence in Afghanistan. Scott and Jeong then talk about the paradox of humanitarian aid and the satellite charity organizations.
