NOW | Back in Iraq Special Preview | PBS

On September 14th -- a day before General David Petraeus' Iraq assessment report is delivered -- NOW on PBS airs a one-hour show on the soldiers of the Third Infantry Division at Georgia's Ft Stewart, many of whom have been deployed an unprecedented third time to the battlefields of Iraq. We profiled their deployment in a NOW program earlier this year. Watch it for free at http://www.pbs.org/now/shows/303/ This time, NOW follows the soldiers as they attempt to carry out the new policy of "clear, hold, build" in towns and villages across the province of Anbar. It's a tall order. The U.S. Army has formed an uneasy partnership with Sunni tribal leaders, who had previously been fighting the Americans. They're allied against Al Qaeda insurgents, but can it besuccessful? A related web-exclusive video of our interviews with Ft. Stewart soldiers and their wives, can be seen on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi9zazc0plA
