Through personal accounts from US war veterans who have served in Afghanistan, CNA investigates why Afghanistan has been left at the mercy of the Taliban.

Back home, disappointment and physical and emotional scars have impacted veterans and families through their combat with unwinnable wars. These have translated into suspicion and mistrust of the American government. Is this why veterans have joined white militia groups resulting in the FBI declaring them a national threat?
