Broken Trust: Resettling Iraqis Left Behind After War

Ten years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and nearly two years after the war ended, a vital yet vulnerable group of Iraqis is still looking for a way out of their homeland. Threatened for their work with U.S. forces, these Iraqis seek refuge in the U.S. But red tape, security concerns and an expiring visa program have hampered their route to safety. We explore the plight of U.S.-affiliated workers in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan with Kirk Johnson, founder of the List Project to Resettle Iraqi Allies, and author of the new book, "To Be a Friend is Fatal."
