Disappointed in series on US presidents

I have been watching the new series on the History Channel about the American presidents, hosted by Bill Clinton.

I was very disappointed in the show I saw last night. When President Eisenhower’s administration was being discussed they mentioned his abhorrence of war, his efforts to limit nuclear proliferation and his views on segregation that highlighted his actions against Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus.

They showed a short clip of his farewell speech, Jan. 17, 1961. Not one word was heard about his most-important point in that speech. President Eisenhower warned the nation against the establishment of a military-industrial complex. This was not at all mentioned in that documentary. Shame on the History Channel and shame on Bill Clinton.
