  • PBS 'Frontline' Director Wrongly Claims 7-Year Navy Vet Steve Bannon Had Zero Military Experience

    On Tuesday night, the leftish PBS documentary series Frontline aired a documentary titled “Bannon’s War” which seemed awfully reminscent of their anti-Cheney documentary suggestively titled “The Dark Side.” If you’re not a liberal PBS fanatic, it was another boring and predictable slog, attacking Bannon and Trump with lots of black and white photos and scary-sounding orchestral music. It was more eye-opening to see the Frontline director and writer Michael Kirk appearing on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to promote his anti-Bannon film on Tuesday morning, where made a flat-out false statement about Bannon’s resume, saying “He’d never been in the military.” What?...

    Before he was fatally shot in 2012, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father that at night he could hear Afghan officers sexually abusing young boys, but there was nothing he could do about it. At night we can hear them screaming, but were not allowed to do anything about it, Gregory Buckley Sr., the Marines father, told the New York Times his son told him. My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because its their culture. Full title: Slain Marines Father Reveals Horrifying Claim His Son Told Him Before He Was Killed:...
  • New Photos Show Bush Administration Reaction to 9/11 Attacks

    In never-before-released photographs taken on Sept. 11, 2001, the shock, horror and gravity of the terrorist attacks can be read on the faces of President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, their wives Laura and Lynne, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenet and other senior Bush and Cheney staffers. The photos were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Colette Neirouz Hanna, coordinating producer for the Kirk Documentary Group, which covered the Bush administration in many films for FRONTLINE, including Bushs War, Cheneys Law and The Dark Side. The photographs, which were...

    Lawfare Blog: Following an American special forces raid on the compound of Islamic State operative Abu Sayyaf, U.S. interrogators, who are part of the High Value Detainee Interrogation Group, have flown to Iraq in order to question Umm Sayyaf, the wife of Abu Sayyaf, who was taken during the operation. Umm Sayyaf was allegedly involved in the workings of the Islamic State and could possibly have played a role in the enslavement of women in Iraq and Syria. U.S. interrogators plan to talk to Umm Sayyaf about U.S. hostages held by the militant group. However, according to the Washington Post,...
  • Putin's Way [PBS documentary]

    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 Putins public persona. --------------------------------------------------------- Putins Way, FRONTLINEs investigation into the accusations of criminality...

    Its 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), capturedlarge portions of northern Iraq in a shock offensive coordinated with other Sunni militant groups. The Islamic States 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, ISISwas forging a professional military force, stirring up Sunni unrest, mounting nationwide bombing campaigns, andkilling Iraqi officials.

    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...

    It was billed as the documentary that Roger Goodell and the NFL didn't want you to see. PBS' Frontline aired its long-awaited specialLeague of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisison 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...

    Talk a little bit first about Punahou, the school you guys went to -- what it was like, what it looked like, how you guys all ended up there, what the environment was like. 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. It seemed as though everybody who was anybody had a kid in there or two. How about Barry Obama? How...

    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...

    The daughter of a prominent New York lawyer has told of her amazing transformation from sheltered, society girl to seasoned combat veteran. Former Manhattan jetsetter Jane Blair swapped her pampered life in New York to become one of the first women on the frontline in Iraq. In her new memoir Hesitation Kills, Mrs Blair, now a 38-year-old captain in the Marine Reserves, recalls the moment that changed her life. She said: 'I grew up in this environment where I never had to work for a living. My dad told me, "I will always take care of you".' She was in...

    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...

For me, Frontline, along with CBS's "60 Minutes," is the best of what is in terribly short supply on American television: reliable, authoritative, in-depth reporting on the important issues of our time and on matters that we need to know more about."
