Quotes

Andrew Cooper: ...and Everett said "Oh, I'm very involved in this organization called ARIA: the Alliance for Rebirth of an Independent America... A.R.I.A." And I asked him what that was and he said, "Well, it was this group that is, is, ya know, absolutely committed to bringing down Bill Clinton. And we're gonna do it. And we've got we've got money, and we've got resources and there are people all over the country who are working on this project."

Well documented arguments
25 July 2004 | by (Rhode Island, USA) – See all my reviews

I rate this documentary as a "9" on a scale where "Bowling for Columbine" is a "10" and "Fahrenheit 9/11" is an "8."

The film makers show in detail how a group of right-wingers manipulated the system in order to bring-down an American President. It further shows the abuse of power by a Republican Congress and a vicious "independent" counsel.

It further shows an American newsmedia obliging in its coverage.

The true heroine of the story was Susan McDougal who went to prison rather than commit perjury.

Lest we forget that Ken Starr released the video of Clinton's deposition on the same day the President addressed the UN on terrorism. How much more could we have done about terrorism if the President was not distracted by the baseless attacks?
