In-Depth NPR Coverage

"Bush's War," a two-part special from the PBS series Frontline, investigates the lead up to — and the justification for — war in Iraq. Journalist and Frontline producer Michael Kirk joins Fresh Air to discuss the program.

"Parts of this history have been told before," Kirk says on the series Web site. "But no one has laid out the entire narrative to reveal in one epic story the scope and detail of how this war began and how it has been fought, both on the ground and deep inside the government."

Kirk has produced over 200 national TV programs and was senior producer for Frontline from 1983 to 1987.
