    PBS Special: America at a Crossroads

    PBS will be airing a special series called America at a Crossroads, starting tonight, April 15, through April 20th. It's probably worth watching for those interested in the war between the Western World and the jihadis.

    Here is a link to the PBS site about the series.

    Please remember this is for informational purposes only. We aren't supposed to get into arguments over religion or politics on this site (I know it's tough for some; me included). Therefore, I ask that if anyone posts in relation to the show, please do so with measured and thoughtful, non-inflamitory comments.

    The last time I posted regarding the Fox News special on this subject, things went well so let's keep it that way with this one. The Mods will be watching and we don't want to get

    Take care.

    Thx for the heads up.

    Unfortunately I don't get that service but will be interested to hear about its overall coverage. Certainly tho not something for in depth debate, just observations.

    A friend of mine, Jack Hafer, is a movie producer in Hollywood. I met with Jack back in February, and he told me that he is doing a series fo PBS that will begin airing in June. The first installment is "Wall of Separation", that deals with the real facts, and exposes some of the fallacies on the subject of the "separation of church and state". It is tentatively scheduled to air June 1st.

    Jack produced a movie a few years ago called "To End All Wars" that won awards, here in the states, and internationally. It deals with a group of Scottish prisoners held by the Japanese, and is the true story behind the Bridge On the River Kwai"

    I heard Glenn Beck, the radio talk show host, say that ONE particular episode of this series was left out. I don't recall what the exact subject matter was, but I think it was one in which "moderates" spoke of their opinions...which may or may not have been "moderate."
    Anybody recall for sure?

    Saw most of #1 last night ....... a lot of useful ''gap filling'' in the history of it all.

    Last night's episode almost made it seem as if we are playing into the hands of the enemy. If they were correct in their assesment of Bin Ladens plans to drag the US into wars in Islamic nations, we are.

    We'll see.
