loleralacartelort7890 dismisses CIA: Secret Wars on the basis that the previous documentary by the director (Opération lune/Dark Side of the Moon) uses manipulation to make it look like the Americans faked the moon landing. He totally missed the point of that documentary. The point was to show how easily the truth can be manipulated with. It wasn't supposed to be a real documentary - in the end you can see that the "experts" are actually actors and so on. I repeat, the point of that movie was not that the moon landing was faked - actually it wasn't about the moon landing at all, but about the media and control.

CIA: Secret Wars, on the other hand, IS a real documentary, and it certainly deserves to be seen.
