The List (#615) Duration: 56:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

An American aid worker fights to save the lives of Iraqis who helped the U.S. reconstruction effort. After leading reconstruction teams in Iraq for two years, 26-year-old Kirk Johnson returns home to discover that many of his former Iraqi colleagues are being killed, kidnapped, or forced into exile by radical militias. Frustrated by a stagnating government bureaucracy that has failed to protect these people, he begins compiling a list of Iraqi allies and helps them find refuge and a new life in America. The List traces the evolution of Kirk's campaign from a one-man crusade into a nationwide grassroots movement.

While his sisters go to school and his father works in the wholesale fish trade, Azad spends his days picking pockets, using drugs and binging on Bollywood films.
