DENVER – October 26, 2009 - Channel 12 will air Frontline: Obama’s War Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 9 p.m.
In the documentary, Frontline examines the tens of thousands of fresh American troops now on the move in Afghanistan, led by a new commander and armed with a counter-insurgency plan that builds on the lessons of Iraq.
Can U.S. forces succeed in a land long known as the “graveyard of empires?”
Frontline producers Martin Smith (Beyond Baghdad, Return of the Taliban) and Marcela Gaviria (In Search of Al Qaeda) make the journey to the frontlines. Through interviews with top U.S. commanders, embeds with U.S. forces and reports from Washington, Smith and Gaviria examine the counter-insurgency strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a fight that promises to be longer and more costly than most Americans understand.
