Yeah, did anyone watch Bill Moyers show on Friday evening?

That's another heartbreaker.

I caught a bit of the Moyers show, switching back and forth from the BSU-Louisville game. The topic was the new film "Body of War," which is a film about one of the nearly 30,000 young Americans grievously wounded by the Iraq War. Click my name.

By the way, it appears that the Shiite cease fire is definitely over ... super-heavy fighting in Baghdad and Basra today.

What was that about how well the surge is working?

Yeah, I wrote about it, Julie. It'll be a powerful movie.

Why those multiple talking pundits were discussing the cease-fire just the other day. The very day those four GIs were killed in fact. The surge is working becuase we're paying these folks. What a freakin' mess!

Just got done watching "Bush's War Pt. 1", pretty disturbing, and damning stuff.

Recording Pt. 2 tonight and watching it tomorrow.

This is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. You really see the wicked brew you get when you mix egos and ideology with policy... Maybe TV isn't a vast wasteland after all!? Frontline has an excellent website where you can watch:


I watched about half of each night's show and plan to catch the rest soon.

I remembered all the screw-ups pretty well. What I didn't remember was how eager Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al were to get the hell out within weeks of the invasion. But with the utter lack of planning and things spiraling out of control throughout 2003, there was no WAY that could happen.

This ought to be REQUIRED viewing by anyone who plans to cast a vote this November. PBS would do us all a great service by editing the five hours down to one so more people could know the gist of it.

I also think Cheney and Rumsfeld in particular should be tried as war criminals.
