As the Iraq War enters its sixth year, American military casualties have reached approximately 34,000 dead and wounded. "But numbers aren't personal," says Bill Moyers. "The only way truly to understand the human cost of this war is to know someone who is bearing it." In this edition of the Journal, Moyers interviews iconic talk show host Phil Donahue and award-winning documentarian Ellen Spiro on their film Body of War, an intimate portrait of Tomas Young-a young man who joined the Army to fight in Afghanistan, was deployed instead to Iraq, and was shot and paralyzed from the mid-chest down on his fifth day in-country. Extensive excerpts from the documentary are included.
