7/9/09: The Life and Legacy of Robert McNamara

By Doug Fabrizio

The decisions he made directly impacted the course of the nation's history and his story paints a picture of America during some of its most turbulent times. McNamara died earlier this week, and Thursday, Doug talks to filmmaker Errol Morris, biographer Deborah Shapley and the University of Utah's Tim Chambless about McNamara and his legacy.
