Bush’s War

2008/04/18

PBS restores my faith in the American democracy and human decency.  Against the backdrop of  dogmatic punditry of cable TV talk shows and exercises in propaganda techniques by documentary makers, journalistic honesty feels refreshing.  The new PBS Frontline series Bush’s War left me angry and exasperated but, in the short four hours, it doubled my understanding of the dynamics of the Iraq War.  I can imagine that forty years from now, the History channel will be playing snippets of these interviews to try to elucidate the most shameful blunder in the American history.
