Miles Lagoze enlisted in the Marines as a combat cameraman. He says the Marines and US military let just about anyone in and go to the war in Afghanistan. Lagoze was tasked with producing U.S. military propaganda to be distributed to Afghans, but he kept the camera rolling to capture the reality of daily life at war. Lagoze then compiled the controversial footage into a war in Afghanistan documentary called Combat Obscura. Lagoze calls out Fox News and the media for glorifying war and sanctifying the military. Lagoze felt a lack of direction with the war in Afghanistan known as Operation Enduring Freedom. He recalls there being drugs everywhere (opium, hashish, weed).
