In The Fog of War, the latest work by one of America's greatest documentary filmmakers, director Errol Morris presents 11 lessons from the life of Vietnam-era Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara. The lessons include: "never say never;" "empathize with your enemy," and "you can't change human nature." NPR's Susan Stone reports.
