Obama At War - December 2, 2015
When President Barack Obama took office in 2008, he had campaigned on ending the war in Iraq and keeping the U.S. out of new military conflicts. But Obama now finds himself exactly where he didn’t want to be: trying to defeat a brutal terrorist group in Iraq and Syria without dragging America into a prolonged regional conflict. How did we get here? In this program, veteran journalist Martin Smith examines the Obama administration’s complicated struggle to deal with the deadly civil war in Syria, now in its fifth year - and explores how the accompanying rise of insurgents have raised the stakes. Drawing on interviews with key military and diplomatic leaders, the film is an intense look at the heated debates within the administration about when and how to get involved in Syria.
