We’ve mentioned the fate of Iraqi translators and interpreters who worked for the Americans in the Iraqi war before. George Packer wrote an article about their story for the New Yorker magazine in 2007. It’s worth reading. Now, the story has been turned into a play, also called “Betrayed.”

Dave Iverson recently interviewed George Packer about his play on KQED.

There is a video on the New Yorker‘s YouTube channel about the play too (note there are profanities included).
