Yesterday, David Swanson told us that War is a Lie. Today, we see the sad truth that comes out of those lies.

Restrepo, the Grand Jury Prize winner for Documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, is a feature-length film by photojournalist Tim Hetheringon and journalist/author Sebastian Junger that chronicles the deployment of US troops stationed at one of the most dangerous outposts in Afghanistan.  It’ll premiere Monday night (11/29) at 9pm ET on the National Geographic channel.

Tim Hetherington will be my guest this morning to talk about this new, unvarnished look at the realities of war.
