“The one thing I couldn’t live without in Iraq was my own humanity,” says Iraq veteran Ethan McCord, who came home from dropping his children off at school to find a video of himself rescuing an child from a bombed-out van. That was the now-infamous WikiLeaks video, and McCord has been collecting his own video and stories from his fellow veterans, speaking out about what he saw at war and what his friends lived through.

McCord joins Laura in studio for a discussion of the suppression of more video from WikiLeaks, the supposed end of the war in Iraq, and the way talking about the war helps him to heal.
