The U.S. Military [electronic resource]: Waging Peace

This program examines the U.S. role as the world peacekeeper in the post-Cold War era. We learn how the U.S., the world's only remaining superpower, is retraining its forces to maintain peace in volatile areas around the globe. Military experts discuss the difficulties that occur when UN forces intervene in the internal disputes of nations. U.S. peacekeeping missions in Bosnia, Somalia, and other trouble spots are used to demonstrate the pitfalls of humanitarian military operations. A U.S. Army Brigadier General and an expert on international law offer insights into the issue.

What Kennedy Didn't Know [electronic resource]: Cuban Missile Crisis Revisited

In 1962, President Kennedy knew that nuclear missiles had been deployed in Cuba. What he did not know was how many, or that 36 of them were capable of reaching as far as Washington, D.C. In this ABC News program, George Stephanopoulos reports on another danger that also went unrecognized at that time: Soviet submarines armed with nuclear torpedoes-and the authorization to fire them. In addition, Barbara Walters elicits Fidel Castro's views on the crisis in an exclusive interview, and Ted Koppel talks with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Haynes Johnson about what it was like to be on the scene during the most dangerous confrontation in history.
