"If [Iraq] survives as a democracy, I do believe that you're going to be able to say that the price was worth it."- former Senator Bob Kerrey (D-NE)
This week on Bill Moyers Journal (http://kcet.org/)
Former Democratic senator Bob Kerrey is making his case for a refocused mission in Iraq. The 9/11 Commission member and Vietnam war veteran tells Bill Moyers why having US military forces in Iraq is necessary in fighting terrorism, but calls for a bipartisan plan to end US policing and occupation in the war torn nation.
One of Washington's most influential public advocates, Joan Claybrook of Public Citizen, talks about what is at stake in the ethical reforms under consideration in Congress.
Bill Moyers shares his perspective on the Vietnam war in an essay featuring archival audio of conversation between President Lyndon Johnson and US National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy.
