The U.S. military recently reopened a criminal investigation into allegations that an Army Special Forces unit was involved in the murders of at least 17 Afghan civilians between 2012 and 2013. Journalist Matthieu Aikins says the delayed investigation is long overdue and that the Army may have covered up a Special Forces killing spree. Aikins joins us to discuss the investigation, America's relationship with Afghanistan and escalating tensions in the region.
