Quotes

former ambassador to Saudi Arabia: One of the more ironic effects of the attack on Iraq, was to buttress other countries in the conviction that, the infamous remark by an Indian general after the first Gulf War when he said, the lesson of this war is that if you have to fight the United States you better have nuclear weapons.

This review regards the 55-minute version. It is not a good documentary. It has more substance and gravitas than Fahrenheit 9/11--which was pointless propaganda--but it is very amateurish-looking, poorly edited, and you can tell, as director Greenwald himself attests, that it was a rush job. After the run-through of all the interviewees at the beginning, some get only one line (Stansfield Turner, Clare Short), and some are forgotten altogether (Thomas White). There were only about five or six individuals that got the bulk of face-time, and you get the impression that Greenwald overreached a bit in trying to assemble an impressive number of credible people to support the anti-war position. From a political standpoint, whether you think that the Bush administration used WMD as a pretext to invade, or whether the President sincerely thought that the weapons existed is moot: with an all-volunteer army, the anti-war forces were never going to get traction. Had the draft been in place in 2003, Kerry would be President right now. But even if most Americans polled think Iraq wasn't worth it, they still support this administration. Without coercion to fight, the anti-war left is barking in the wind.
