The Insurgency (#2409)

FRONTLINE will help sort through the question on many minds today: How will the death of al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi affect the future of the Iraqi insurgency? This rebroadcast of a special report, which originally aired on February 21, 2006, profiles the multi-faceted forces battling coalition troops in Iraq. The investigation includes special access to insurgent leaders, as well as interviews with commanders of Iraqi and U.S. military units battling for control of the country, and detailed analysis from journalists who have risked their lives to meet insurgent leaders and their foot soldiers.
