Originally broadcast on PBS in 2007 as an episode of the television series Frontline.
As the United States begins one final effort to secure victory through a "surge" of troops, FRONTLINE investigates how strategic and tactical mistakes brought Iraq to civil war. The film recounts how the early mandate to create the conditions for a quick exit of the American military led to chaos, failure and sectarian strife. In ENDGAME, producer Michael Kirk traces why the president decided to risk what miltary planners once warned could be the worst way to fight in Iraq--door-to-door--and assesses the likelihood of its success. Top administration figures, military commanders and journalists offer inside details about the new strategy.
