FRONTLINE: "LOSING IRAQ"
July 29, 2014  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

This latest video-retrospective history lesson from executive producer Michael Kirk and associates is another example of the enduring value of Frontline. All it does, in Losing Iraq, is go back to the start of the Iraq War, and trace the key moves, missteps, allegiances and battles since. What emerges is a chilling portrait that makes today’s international unrest, and the rise of the Sunnis, seem much more understandable – and puts a good percentage of the blame on various moves by the Bush administration. Participants as well as observers retell the story, plainly and sometimes shockingly, with one expert summarizing American military moves as “incompetent,” “indecisive” and “inhumane.” Check local listings.
