I made a guest appearance last Sunday on "This Week in Defense News with Vago Muradian." Disclaimer: I helped create this show when I was at Army Times Publishing Co. In any event, Vago had me on to talk about my documentary "Afghanistan: The Surge." For pain junkies, here's the url to the clip (look in the right hand side for the specific segment of the show).

The film goes into the hands of the post production folks today. They're the ones who correct the color and sweeten the audio. In other words, put a high gloss finish on the film. If all goes according to plan, the film will be distributed to all the PBS stations on June 15. Each station will then decide if and when they broadcast it. Stay tuned for further details.

I've struck a deal to distribute the film to all of the PBS stations in the country. The film has a new title: "Afghanistan: The Surge." Distribution to the stations will take place in mid June. Each station will be free to air it or not, and to pick whatever date and time they want. As I get more information about specific stations I will post it here. Also, as soon as the program has aired on the first station I will have DVDs and Blu-rays available for sale. So, as the advertising people say, watch this space.
