provided by george c marshall, who was a big leader in the unified command. the ability to create this unified command structure was one of the things that made it possible. >> here is john from san diego. go ahead. some father was one of 2000 african-american men who landed at omaha and utah beaches on june 6, 1944. thats one of the people drove the truck that supplied ammo and food, and yet you never see any african-americans .epicted in any movie i think it is a distortion of history that some 2000 african-american men were never given honor for what they contribute it to probably the greatest saving that ever occurred. >> i think you are absolutely right. and it is worse than you suggest. it's not just the 2000 african-american that were ashore on omaha and utah beaches. it is that 10% of the entire american army consisted of african-american men who did all the work and made possible -- logistic support work and made all of it possible for the invasion in the first place. but it is not historians and modern-day commentators who overlook that. it is that the archives, the film arch

soviet union because we couldn't defeat them, too good, too strong. then back under the george bush administration, saddam hussein, you know, he had to go. he was a strong man, but when he was there, none of these problems existed because he crushed them. granted, yeah, he was brutal, but now that he's gone, there is a power vacuum there. it's created a multitude of problems, which we helped create. >> ambassador hill, do you want to pick up on that? your assessment of how much responsibility the u.s. has in the problems in iraq today. >> well, you know, if you live there, as i've lived there, and you see what saddam hussein did to that country and did to his people, you don't rue the day we got rid of hussein. he was a hideous character. at the same time you do have the impression that the u.s. didn't understand what we were dealing with that. we thought that somehow, if we got rid of saddam hussein, there was this sort of level of middle class and issues-based politics yearning to flourish in a democratic environment. in fact, when you get rid of governance, even bad governance, a

going to have to put together a german force.ed -- a tremendous george marshall looks at plans to going to france as early as 1942 after pearl harbor. the problem was basically an economic one. we did not have the material resources, or the troops. you have to train troops if you are going to be successful in this. from a political standpoint, franklin roosevelt understood this. imagine if we tried to launch across channel invasion from 1943, when we2 or knew that we do not have the economic resources or the military resources doubt a to have al -- successful commission. imagine if we got pushed back into the ocean, and it was a failure. it was understood that a lot of democratic support would fade away. people would say, it is too hard to defeat hitler, let's leave him with his foils. there was a lot riding on that invasion. we had to get right. that dictates our strategy. we realize we cannot invade and 1942. in 1943, we realize, it will take another year before we are ready to launch and operation that will be successful. in the meantime, we do have to try to take some pressure

by george bush and close to the bush family, gates was. and when obama came in he reappointed him but two and a half years later there was tension inside a republican doing things and gates was very much against some of the things that happened in the operation. he thought we should bomb the place and let it go and not jeopardize the seals. they would be accused, they had not protection, they were committing a war crime and prisoner of wars and they competent cue -- executed a prisoner of war and in a country without authority. that's theoretically what happened. what's so important about pakistan, cozing up to the generals around it. when i wrote about it in the new yorker in 2009, more than a hundred nuclear weapons and we worry about their weapons, we are worried about their safety.

say in the book, this is not just about barack obama. george w. bush was an executive out of control, bill clinton, h.w. reagan. this has a 100-year history in this country of the executive growing in power by leaps and bounds. president obama has multiplied it exponentially to the point where basically the president thinks he can do whatever he wants and no someone is stopping him. all of that is very frightening to american citizens or at least it should be, which is why i call for something as radical as allowing american citizens to sue the government. admittedly, something that would be unthinkable 100 years ago. i'm not sure what exactly our alternatives are when you have the president of the united states who can essentially do whatever he wants, even criminally speaking, and given the fact that no one's getting impeached because since the clinton impeachment everyone's decided that's taboo, there are no violations anymore. >> you can watch this and other programs online at >> here are a few of book festivals we'll be covering this spring on c-span2's bookt
