Michael Kirk, award winning producer for PBS Frontline, discusses his new documentary “Bush’s War,” the struggle within the administration over the policy of whether and how to aggressively invade and occupy Iraq, the dominance of Dick Cheney over the will of Bush, the personal splits between Powell, Armitage, Tenet, Rumsfeld, Rice, etc. and I. Lewis Libby’s intimidation of the departments to come up with some lies to make Cheney’s lies about Mohammed Atta’s imaginary meeting with Iraqi intelligence seem true.

  1. …More than 100 National TV Documentaries? Yeah?…Well…Hell…Then he should take it upon himself to produce one about the malefactions of AIPAC, and the undue influence of Israeli interests on US Foreign Policy…Perhaps even an at length interview with “unpersons” in the form of Professors Walt and Mearsheimer might be in order… or at least productive? I mean…it couldn’t hurt?

  2. …hell would freeze first.

  3. Good Morning, Charles & Michael

    Yes, i did watch the documentary “Bush’s War,” it was very informative, but more should have been discussed about current situation in Irag 07 to present and where this mess is headed. Also, relation of military complex and how war effecting our economy for worse not better. I mean this is only the tip of the iceberg. But I enjoy it nevertheless.
