An investigation of the massacre of 24 men, women and children in Haditha, Iraq allegedly shot by 4 U.S. Marines in retaliation for the death of a U.S. Marine killed by a roadside bomb. The movie follows the story of the Marines of Kilo Company, an Iraqi family, and the insurgents who plant the roadside bomb.

The only film I'v e seen before by Nick Broomfield was his war film Battle for Haditha (2007)and this film was a pleasant surprise even though it's incredible bias against Palin. However, this shouldn't prevent anyone from seeing it.
Nick Broomfield goes up to Alaska visits Palins, friends, family(especially her parents)old co workers and also friends from high school. Broomfield comes across as friendly, naive version of Michael Moore, or a more accurate description, he resembles Louis Theroux.
With his British accent, polite manners, he comes across someone not looking to do a hit piece but rather just curious about Palin, her family and also her politics.
But as one would expect he uncovers a lot....stuff that show Palins complete incompetence, her inabilities as politician and her close links to the religious right.
Oddly enough the harshest critics are not liberals, former friends, enemies, but actually from her own political party. Therefore this film regardless of bias does not promote her enemies but rather showing that Palins career and future hopes at becoming president was very slim even before it started.
Should be seen by anyone, regardless of political color because it asks a lot of interesting questions, such as what kind of politicians do we want and also what qualifications should a presidential candidate have?
