    Airdate: Friday, January 30, 2009, at 9:00 p.m. EST on PBS. (Check local listings.)

    On the heels of the American drone attacks on suspected terrorist compounds in Pakistan, Bill Moyers Journal takes a closer look at America's history of, and current policy on, bombing; explores the ethics behind these assaults when civilians become the victims, and asks: Does bombing work? Bill Moyers sits down with historian Marilyn Young, author of the forthcoming "Bombing Civilians: A Twentieth Century History" and former Pentagon official Pierre Sprey, who developed military planes and helped found the military reform movement. And, with state budgets strapped, President Obama's proposed economic stimulus plan directs funds to educational institutions. Bill Moyers talks with Carnegie Corporation president Vartan Gregorian on the future of public higher education and its role in our democracy.
