Award Honored Work: 
“Obama’s War”

“Frontline: Obama’s War” flawlessly captures a special moment in the fog of the Afghan War. As the U.S. president’s deployment of additional troops took the conflict to a new level, the producers of Frontline show us, village by Afghan village, the challenges—and sometime hopelessness—of the process of nation-building. The production shows us not only that there is no quick fix, but offers a look at just what the consequences of failure might be.
