FRONTLINE interviews strategists and former military advisers about the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and about the tough choices that lie ahead for a new US president in "The War Briefing," coming Tuesday, October 28 at 9 pm to PBS (check local listings).
The next president of the United States will inherit some of the greatest foreign policy challenges in American history—an overstretched military, frayed alliances, and wars on two fronts. FRONTLINE gives viewers a hard, inside look at the real policy choices the next president will face. The report features harrowing on the ground footage, as well as strategists and diplomats giving their best advice about how to correct past failures and how to shape a realistic foreign policy approach in the war against the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
