Summary
As the Bush administration promotes the idea of a growing al Qaeda threat in Iraq, the Journal analyzes the facts on the ground to explore who the U.S. is really fighting. In this program, Bill Moyers gets perspective from Brian Fishman of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, whose research focuses on the impact of the war in Iraq on terrorism globally, and Fawaz A. Gerges of Sarah Lawrence College and the author of the highly acclaimed books The Far Enemy: Why Jihad Went Global and Journey of the Jihadist: Inside Muslim Militancy. Moyers also reports on the hidden Congressional spending provisions known as earmarks-often used as payback for political contributions-and reflects on the death of a young soldier
