Scary indeed!, 25 March 2005
Author: prudhocj from Olympic Peninsula

I've known of this documentary for a while now and even tried to see it before the last presidential election. It is indeed scary. It brings together disparate stories and facts of the last 25 years tying them together in a coherent pattern that is downright ugly! I was especially impressed by the filmmakers focus on one of the biggest unreported stories of the last quarter of the 20th Century - that being how the Reagan cabal manipulated the 1980 election in order to win it and then paid off one of the members of the nascent "axis of evil" for their cooperation. This all culminated in the Iran/Contra scandal for which only one person took the fall, too bad he didn't (and still doesn't) have the honor and integrity to expose this treasonous story. Find this movie and show it to your friends.
