Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “Looking Back on Bosnia”

Firing Line Videos, Hoover Institution, taped on July 9, 1998, uploaded to YouTube on March 5, 2015.

Guest: Richard C. Holbrooke


“Bosnia” in this show’s title is a synecdoche for the whole explosive region of the Balkans, of which Kosovo was currently the likeliest to erupt. An absorbing session with Richard C. Holbrooke, who, whether or not conservatives will agree with him, gives a vivid account of how the world let this mess get as bad as it is, and what we might still do to retrieve the situation.
