Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series.

- Program Description
FRONTLINE traces the roots of the Iraqi war back to the days immediately following September 11, when Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld ordered the creation of a special intelligence operation to quietly begin looking for evidence that would justify the war. The intelligence reports soon became a part of a continuing struggle between civilians in the Pentagon on one side and the CIA, State Department and uniformed military on the other -- a struggle that would lead to inadequate planning for the aftermath of the war, continuing violence and mounting political problems for the president.
