Noora: The Human Face of "Collateral Damage"


Chilling, moving video from No More Victims, a grassroots, anti-war organization that brings war-injured children to U.S. communities for medical treatment and "some small measure of restorative justice." Featuring Noora, an Iraqi girl who at five was shot in the head by an American sniper, was brought to Maine where she underwent 12 surgeries, and has now returned to her country. Hard to watch. Good to be reminded what our wars do to those who endure them.

"And who shot you?

"American people."
