Robert McNamara was on Charlie Rose last a film producer who did a movie on Mac's career.

Kinda sureal...McNamara is confronted by Rose and the Producer to be more forthcomming with his *political/military offer insight in the current Iraq situation.

McNamara refuses...waxes eloquent and says he will not criticise His President...but readers can glean from the 3 books he has participated in recently on his life and times.

The Producers is rolling his eye's for his reasons..and Charlie Rose is looking at Mac like he does at times when trying to understand Graveltone [Henry Kissinger] in an interview.

I'm watching this thinking.."What a disconnect".!
Charlie Rose..."So are we doomed to keep repeating the same mistakes" ?

Hand motions from McNamara...eye's rolling around from film producer.

The sureal part is the Film producer..who wants to see the lessons of the past learned applied to Americas best interst...that why he choose to do the film thingy on Mac..he has some passion behind his reasoning.

Tragic that an uncertain "what to do" McNamara had so many years near a Presidents ear.

Tragic too..that he chooses a forum like books to medicate his soul.

I like Charlie Rose for how he steers the interviewer to the topic..and tries to keep them their ..regardless of their talent to evade the core question at hand.
Charlie looked frustrated..the interview was a dud.

McNamara...I'm not intersted in reading a book or books by a man who is scared of his own shadow.
