Host Per Fagereng interviews Conn Hallinan, columnist for Foreign Policy In Focus, about two of his recent articles. In "Death at a Distance: The U.S. Air War," Hallinan says "an enormous intensification of U.S. bombardments" in Iraq and Afghanistan entails an "increasing number of civilian casualties ... and the growing role of pilot-less killers in the conflict."     His most recent piece is "The Surge: Illusion and Reality," which argues that a decrease in attacks on U.S. troops is more the result of political decisions by the U.S. government and Iraqi groups than the result of more U.S. troops in Iraq.
