Econintersect: Tonight (05 July) PBS has rebroadcast the review of how ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) came to be what they are today. This epic broadcast traces the background of the development of the Islamic State and the damning connections back to the U.S. The original broadcast of this investigative report was 17 May 2016.
Vice President Dick Cheney and assistant Scooter Libby (2003).
From the press release from PBS:
Over the past several weeks, the world has been shocked by a series of deadly terror attacks in multiple countries during the holy month of Ramadan - including a suicide bombing this weekend that killed more than 200 people in Baghdad, for which ISIS claimed responsibility.
Tonight's FRONTLINE, The Secret History of ISIS, is a deep dive into how the terror group came to be - and how its founding father first began developing its brutal playbook more than a decade ago.
From veteran filmmaker Michael Kirk and his team, the documentary reveals how the American invasion of Iraq and the decisions of two presidents helped to lay the groundwork for ISIS to grow into the world's most feared terrorist group.
It's essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand the bigger picture behind the tragic headlines.
