A Heartbreaking Story From Another Perspective
17 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you think that the wave of fine documentaries dealing with just how bad the Bush administration royally screwed up the aftermath of September 11,even with Bush out of the White House has ceased,guess again. 'The Oath',the second part of a trilogy of films,tells yet,another story of what we don't know (but should). Two life long friends,Nassar al Bahri, and Salim Hamdan,long before the events of 9/11,found themselves introduced to Osama Bin Laden,and some of the chief members of Al Qaeda, and went to work for them (with Nassar having his name changed to Abu Jandal by Osama Bin Laden,himself). When America was attacked by Al Qaeda,both were arrested,and put in prison,with Abu Jandal released some time later,while Salim found himself detained in Guantanomo prison in Cuba (where he still remains today). In a series of interview footage,and news stories from the major American television networks, documentary film maker,Laura Poitras ('Flag Wars',and one episode of P.O.V.:My Country,My Country-the first film in the series)attempts to make sense of a nonsensical situation. This is a documentary that like 'My Country,My Country',is sure to touch it's share of raw nerves, in both the left,as well as the conservative far right. Spoken in Arabic with English subtitles,and English. Not rated by the MPAA,but contains some disturbing spoken testimony.
