Christmas with the Enemy

Short Description: 
How some soldiers in WWI laid down their guns and celebrated Christmas with each other
Humanity at its best amidst the brutality of war.

The hundredth anniversary telling of the hectic rush into WWI, and the horrors unleashed. The men thought they'd be home by Christmas to tell of the excitement over a glass by the fireside. German High Command promised a "fresh and cheerful war." But by Christmas a million soldiers lay dead, with no end it sight. In defiance of commanding officers, and at risk of their lives, the soldiers lay down their guns and climbed out of their trenches armed with wine, food and cigarettes, to greet the others, exchange gifts, and agree to a ceasefire.

They ate, they sang, their played together. They brought in the wounded and buried the dead, often with men of both armies working as one.

Exclusive interview with lawyer Stanley Cohen on effort to release ISIS hostage
On this KBOO exclusive, we speak with Stanley Cohen, the lifelong activist lawyer whose commitment to justice has brought him to odds with the US government on more than one occasion.

This time, however, Stanley found himself in the position of having to coordinate with State Department officials when he traveled to Jordan in October as a private individual to try to secure the release of Peter Abdul-Rahman Kassig, who had been taken hostage by ISIS.

Whether the Jordanian government intentionally mis-led their powerful U.S. ally, or the U.S. had no intention of allowing it, the release effort was sabotaged when Jordan arrested one of those involved.  Soon after that sabotage, Kassig was killed by his captors.
