  • Putin's Way [PBS documentary]

    01/14/2015 12:53:15 AM PST · by elhombrelibre · 51 replies
    The larger-than-life Russian leader has held power — with one title or another — for 15 years, and is set to reign for at least a decade more. Yet Putin remains inscrutable. With only a smattering of biographical details released to the public and his sometimes puzzling public appearances, scholars — and even many world leaders — still struggle to understand the man at the helm of the Kremlin. To glean a clearer picture, FRONTLINE took a closer look at some of the most identifiable aspects of Putin’s public persona. --------------------------------------------------------- Putin’s Way, FRONTLINE’s investigation into the accusations of criminality...

    PBS Frontline ^ | 8-7-2014
    It’s the first hint of an escalated American presence in Iraq since President Obama dispatched 300 U.S. military advisers there in June, after ISIS, (also known as the Islamic State), captured large portions of northern Iraq in a shock offensive coordinated with other Sunni militant groups. The Islamic State’s rise may have seemed sudden, but the group – which grew out of Al Qaeda in Iraq – has been rebuilding for years. Even before U.S. forces left Iraq in 2011, ISIS was forging a professional military force, stirring up Sunni unrest, mounting nationwide bombing campaigns, and killing Iraqi officials. To find out more...

    Hardly a day goes by without some new revelation regarding the US surveillance leviathan's reach. In the following (part 1 of a 2-part series), PBS' FrontLine reveals the dramatic inside story of how the U.S. government came to monitor and collect the communications of millions of people around the world - and the lengths they went to trying to hide the massive surveillance program from the public. From 9/11 to Edward Snowden and on to NSA reform - what must be done... a must-watch for all US citizens (if they can spare some time away from The Voice or Flappy...

    Frontline ^ | Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book
    Received this in a email today. Thought I would pass it on for everyones information. (from a soon to be released major work - see book credit at end) Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components. Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called "religious rights." When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to "the reasonable" Muslim demands for their "religious rights," they also...

    Bleacher Report ^ | October 9, 2013 | Michael Schottey
    It was billed as the documentary that Roger Goodell and the NFL didn't want you to see. PBS' Frontline aired its long-awaited special—League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis—on Tuesday night to a bevy of support (and buzz) from the football community. In terms of media attention, only ESPN's 30 for 30 draws this kind of anticipation and reaction as a documentary series. For those that were not able to watch it live or forgot to set the DVR, the near two-hour special is available on Frontline's website. As you may remember, this is the documentary that ESPN first assisted...

Yeah, to me, Punahou represented the best of students that had potential. It was a very high-standard type school. I do remember that even as kids we were always thinking about, man, I'd really want to go to Punahou because that is the cat's meow.

    To give up the 5,000-square-kilometre “West Bank” - roughly 50 kilometres wide and 100 kilometres in length - would be to put Israel in a totally indefensible position by giving up military advantages in four critical areas. Yitzhar is probably the most hated, headlined and demonized “settlement” in Samaria. Only passionately convinced people would visit this Jewish town. But anyone visiting it would also understand what would happen to Tel Aviv and Herzliya if, instead of Jews, the PLO-Hamas regime would be controlling Yitzhar. From Yitzhar, located high up in the hills near Nablus, the Biblical city of Shechem, you...

    Politicians and pundits are again debating the wisdom and necessity of American taxpayer support for public radio and television. Both Juan Williams's firing and alleged comments by National Public Radio's executive Ron Schiller have raised real questions about political bias.It seems that the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) has a similar problem. Someone at its Frontline website has been substituting fake biographies of conservatives written by an organization called Right Web for legitimate institutional biographies. Right Web is a project of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), a think tank whose scholars' positions range from left wing to Marxist. When challenged...

    At the height of the protests following Iran's controversial presidential election this summer, a young woman named Neda Agha Soltan was shot and killed on the streets of Tehran. Her death -- filmed on a camera phone, then uploaded to the Web -- quickly became an international outrage, and Soltan became the face of a powerful movement that threatened the hard-line government's hold on power. In A Death in Tehran, FRONTLINE revisits the events of last summer, shedding new light on Neda's life and death and the movement she helped inspire. In response to the international outcry over Neda's death...

It’s hard to know where to start with everything that is wrong with this two-part series, airing at 9 p.m. March 24 and 25 on PBS. So I’ll start with what’s right with it. As television goes, it is a relatively comprehensive review of the major decisions and controversies of the Iraq war, with a little 9/11, Afghanistan precede.

A pair of Apache gunships hovered above and the occasional thud of artillery shells shook the ground. This front line in the U.S. military's fight against al-Qaida in Iraq lies just 10 miles from the heart of the Iraqi capital. "This is a road we had not traveled on in nearly a year," declared Lt. Col. Mark Solomon, the area's U.S. commander, standing on a dirt lane a dozen yards from the one-story...

    First, you have to frame the problem. How to orchestrate a multiple hatchet job on those men who, in a time of national fear and anxiety, stood a trembling nation back on it's feet, and said, "We will respond, and with vigor. No more swatting flies." At the same time, however, you have to find some magic way of presenting those discredited, terminated and bitter ex-employees of the agency which apparently failed in their duties to faithfully watch at the walls, but yet not expose them as bitter, disgruntled employees. Apparently, no one was supposed to notice your one-sided lineup,...

    In "Private Warriors," "Frontline" takes a full hour tonight to look at the street-level mayhem in Baghdad and the life-and-death stakes for private security firms, which the United States military employs as protectors and shuttlers in the war zone. The result is appropriately, engagingly upsetting. True to the era of terror, wherever these guardians roam, the enemy does not make himself known until it's nearly too late. The scariest moments in the program occur when a convoy of tinted-window S.U.V.'s ferries "Frontline" journalists to the Green Zone, the government compound in Baghdad, and gets stuck in a mundane logjam on...

    After surviving one of the roughest presidential elections in modern times, President George W. Bush singled out one member of his team in particular, calling Karl Rove the campaign's "architect." But Rove, a longtime Bush adviser and confidant, is much more than a political guru, he is also the single most powerful -- and ambitious -- policy adviser in the White House. In "Karl Rove -- The Architect," FRONTLINE® and The Washington Post join forces to trace the political history and modus operandi of the controversial figure who has been on the inside of every major political and policy decision...

    Outrageous Episode On US TV (PBS) by Jack Engelhard PBS' Frontline, on the evening of Tuesday, April 5, presented "Settlers in Gaza and the West Bank", perhaps the most one-sided, lopsided view of Israel's settler movement as has ever appeared on American television. Only one conclusion: PBS is determined to stir passions of anti-Semitism and to help Palestinian Arabs in their dreams to destroy the Jewish state. Of the entire 60-minute program (not PBS' finest hour), some 40 minutes were devoted to a bombing that never came off -- against an Arab school by Jewish "extremists". Actual bombings, by the...

    I just finished watching this much heralded documentary. It is now available online, and I advise all Freepers to have a look at it to see a little bit of the heroic efforts of an extraordinary group of men. As a European is is humbling, to watch these lads give it all for their country. It is perhaps borderline posting this in the news section, but I think as many people as possible should see these guys and what they are doing for all of us, not the least the manner they do it in. True giants among men. Cheers.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- At least two TV stations will show an uncensored documentary about soldiers in Iraq despite a warning from PBS that it can't insure stations against FCC fines stemming from bad language. The public broadcaster is distributing "clean" and "raw" versions of next Tuesday's "Frontline" documentary about the Iraq war, titled "A Company of Soldiers." It's an example of the television's industry's continued uncertainty about Federal Communications Commission standards for language and content, and a real-life echo of last fall's decision by 66 ABC affiliates not to air the movie "Saving Private Ryan." The documentary contains 13...

    NEW YORK -- Worried about the Federal Communications Commission, PBS is taking the words out of the mouths of some soldiers filmed during combat in Iraq.

    The Man Who Knew is the story of the life and death of FBI Special Agent John O'Neill. As the bureau's top counter-terrorism agent, O'Neill had investigated the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Africa and the USS Cole in Yemen. For six years, O'Neill was the FBI's leading expert on Al Qaeda. He warned of its reach. He warned of its threat to the U.S. He came to believe that the United States should kill Osama bin Laden before Al Qaeda launched a devastating attack on America. But O'Neill's often lonely voice was muted by a headquarters bureaucracy that...
