PBS' Frontline premieres its new season this Tuesday with a riveting new documentary titled "Obama's War." Featuring some of the most gripping war footage of the last eight years, the documentary addresses a fundamental question at a time of heated debate over the long-term goals of the war in Afghanistan: should we be in a counterinsurgency war at all?

Ahead of the broadcast on Tuesday, October 13th at 9pm, PBS has posted the first 24 minutes of the documentary online, which includes combat footage, including the death of a U.S. Marine. The footage also features an interview with General Stanley A. McChrystal, the current commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan.
