Vice Season 2

Season Two Premiere. 'Afghan Money Pit' - The U.S. has spent nearly $100 billion on reconstruction projects in Afghanistan - the most spent on any country in our history. Yet John Sopko, the U.S.'s Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, has found that much of that money has been wasted and misused--or fallen into the hands of the Taliban. 'The Pacification of Rio' - Rio de Janeiro is working hard to remedy its drug and murder capital reputation in time for the upcoming World Cup and Olympics. The Special Police Operations Battalion, or BOPE, has been charged with pacifying the slums, but their violent military occupation of favelas has been criticized as heavy-handed, to say the least. Ben Anderson looks under the picturesque facade Rio's sports marketing wants you to see, to reveal the dark underbelly of the city.
