Quotes

voice: [spoken over carrier landing scene at end of film] In some respects, it's as if Viet Nam never even happened. It's as if a lot of our leaders have suffered some sort of historical and political lobotomy.... The United States ultimately is supposed to be an exemplar for the rest of the world.... We've violated fundamental principles... that have guided this country's foreign policy so successfully since 1947.

Eye-opening. Don't even think about Iraq before you watch this.
10 December 2003 | by (Rowan county, Kentucky) – See all my reviews



Former CIA, Ambassadors, Senators, and other Washington DC insiders sum up what they know about the "Iraq war;" Iraq's supposed ties with 9-11 and Al-Qaeda, and the lies and mis-information the Bush administration has fed the public to justify this outrage known as "Operation Enduring Freedom."

This is a must-see.
