Not to be missed on tonight’s Frontline–the newest from correspondent Martin Smith and RAINmedia on the war in Afghanistan. “Obama’s War” airs on Frontline on Tuesday, October 13 at 9pm on PBS (check local listings).
According to RAINmedia:
“Three years ago, a small cadre of US army officers huddled at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to re-write the service’s long-neglected counterinsurgency manual. Under the direction of General David Petraeus, the effort brought the battle for “hearts and minds” to the forefront of American strategic thinking. First tested in Iraq, the new approach is now being rolled out in Afghanistan on a grand scale. The stakes are huge for both sides. And the war promises to be longer and harder than most Americans understand. FRONTLINE investigates the fight on the ground and in Washington.”
