Americans have come to accept that the accidental killing of innocent civilians, and soldiers because of friendly fire, is just one of the sad realities of war. But what if we were told that those ill-fated casualties were the direct result of relentless military drug pushing? In this damning investigation, award-winning journalist Jamie Doran explores the allegation that U.S. air crews are being fed amphetamine pills "like candy." The Pentagon introduces its infamous "go pills" as a "mild stimulant," but ex-airmen tell a different story: they're mind-bending and dangerously addictive. A commercial airline pilot caught under the influence of speed would be forbidden to fly, possibly even dismissed. So why is the Pentagon allowing this shocking practice to continue in the military?
