This episode revealed a little-known, horrific history of sexual abuse by priests in the Catholic church against children of Native American villages in remote Alaska. Although adult survivors still suffer, it is clear: No one was punished, and the hierarchy did not get it. The reporter is herself native American, and her efforts to exact some compensation from the church to the victims largely fell on deaf ears. What she did was to bring light to something hidden; it would have been covered, ignored, and forgotten without this documentary.

This is how in depth reporting should be done. Frontline should be the textbook example to be held up to everyone else in television news. Once again PBS shows what can be done when high quality is the standard rather than appealing to the "lowest common denominator" to make a buck.

When is the beginning of the ending of life? We need to be able to accept a reality that has been imposed by the ability to prolong life. What can be done as opposed to what should be done . . . what qualities of life are a part of this balance? An exceptionally well presented documentary that poses a simple question that has too many answers. What is a 'good death?' Is the concern for the patient or the patient's family? Physicians, surgeons, patients, and families are faced with having to find an answer within a myriad of complexities. To find answers, all aspects of a patient's care are taken into consideration because the answer is an 'unknown.' This has become a dilemma within modern medicine. There isn't a single equation that can be used to determine treatment vs. no treatment. This presentation may be helpful in allowing one to make their own decision. The information is accurate and not over dramatized. Listen carefully and understand the responsibility that we can choose for ourselves without leaving the responsibility for that decision to another. Decades of experience have allowed me to make an informed decision. I have made a choice so that others are not forced to make a decision for me.

I've been waiting a year to see this episode by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Dana Priest (and Jim Gilmore) about her year-long investigation into the new secret government infrastructure with all the gory details. This revealed very little about that. Only about 10% of the episode's time was devoted to where these sites are, how they are funded, how they work with local law enforcement, what they are doing, etc.. The vast majority of the time is spent rehashing the events that led up to this situation with all of the bureaucrats and government officers telling us how patriotic they are and why they were justified to take the gloves off and do anything they wanted beating us over the head with their rhetoric. I suspect that Priest's story was compromised by the governmental players to water down the theme and impact this story deserves. What a disappointment. I suppose I will have to read Dana's book to get the full story. Thanks for selling-out, Frontline.

Frontline always deals with socially important, controversial topics. The programs are always very compelling and informative. However, there is often rather obvious muck raking, defined as "the action of searching out and publicizing scandalous information in an underhanded way." It is a tradition of investigative journalism dating from the 1920s against unfair labor practices, so has a history of social activism.

That approach is more entertaining than just dry reporting, but I wonder how much of that information is credible or is biased.

At more and more of the interview unfolded his credibility faded. Couldn't finish watching the interview. His views, and I don't care what role he played, was contrary to what we saw and heard in interviews by officials involved in the case. Well known fact, KSM revealed names and important details as a result of water boarding. I have no sympathy for anyone involved in murdering 3000 Americans but I think the agent does. Very, very slanted documentary.

I have been watching Frontline for decades. It is one of the best documentary programs on the air & has always been. They have a unique way of presenting their show that somehow stands out from all others. Frontline could air a show about the most boring subject & still catch your attention. I will be watching every single episode even though I've seen them all before. I advise anyone who has never seen Frontline to watch it just once & I guarantee, you WILL be hooked….. forever.
