Bush and Dick Cheney From a Dying Veteran.” Legendary television talk show host Phil Donahue joins the conversation to discuss his 2007 documentary, “Body of War,” which follows Tomas’ rehabilitation and his political awakening to become one of the most prominent antiwar U.S. veterans speaking out against the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
