The story of the assassination of U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy who was shot in the early morning hours of June 5, 1968 in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, and 22 people in the hotel whose lives were never the same.
When the WTC was attacked in 1993 - Iwas shocked that this could happen. Why did it take so long - 8 long years - before we took this threat seriously? Treating it as a crime instead of as an act of war? This movie (& it is only a movie) goes a long way to explaining some of the events of that period. It is clear that there were many good people on the ground doing their job - like the Filipino cop, the border crossing guard, the Harvey Keitel character - but that there were many higher ups who did not connect the dots and left the country vulnerable. There is much to be learned here. As Tony Blair said recently - many of the world's leaders are aware of the danger of Islamic fascisim but that for some reason the general public seems blissfully unaware of the danger. The WTC was not one wake up call - it was two wake up calls.
