Something wrong with the clip?

Jeremy Scahill:
Kabul, Afghanistan, four in the morning. As an American jounalist I was used to finding stories in the middle of the night. But there is always something eerie, driving through the deserted streets. A city of three million, barely a streetlight on. There was a familiar routine, waiting for the crew to light up the next set so that you could see something in the background. But what could we really see?


00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:03.127
in Afghanistan
00:00:03.169 --> 00:00:05.228
I'd worked in Baghdad for years
00:00:05.271 --> 00:00:07.205
and had written countless stories there
00:00:07.024 --> 00:00:09.071
many from the front lines of the war
00:00:10.041 --> 00:00:12.071
It was there that I first started reporting
00:00:12.111 --> 00:00:13.408
for The Nation magazine
00:00:14.847 --> 00:00:16.474
But I'd never heard of JSOC
00:00:16.516 --> 00:00:18.711
The budget for the Joint Special Operations Command
00:00:18.751 --> 00:00:20.275
you can't get it through a FOIA request
00:00:20.032 --> 00:00:21.582
We've tried that
00:00:21.621 --> 00:00:24.001
I'd missed the most important story
00:00:24.999 --> 00:00:26.001
In Iraq the U S had fundamentally changed
00:00:26.058 --> 00:00:27.424
the way it fought war
00:00:28.927 --> 00:00:30.758
The real story JSOC
