War Behind Closed Doors, The
Program Number


Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

FRONTLINE examines the hidden story of what is really driving the Bush Administration to war with Iraq. The investigation asks whether the publicly reported reasons -- fear of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction or a desire to insure and protect American's access to oil -- are only masking the real reason for the war. Through interviews with well placed sources in and outside of the administration, FRONTLINE unravels a story known only to the Washington insiders.
