I want to explore how war reporting is done, how many different ways one can view war, and how that reporting can and does affect policy. Can embedded reporters be objective? Did 9-11 change journalism? Are we Americans first? Or journalists first? In addition we will talk about the military as a career, who joins, what the chain of command is, and how members of the military view courage and heroism. Does the country care? Does the military really want to go to war? Or they the last ones who would choose battle? Should there be a draft? There will be opportunities for creative writing. I want to see writing that tells stories, not "just the facts." - Martha Raddatz
