Quotes

voice: [spoken over carrier landing scene at end of film] In some respects, it's as if Viet Nam never even happened. It's as if a lot of our leaders have suffered some sort of historical and political lobotomy.... The United States ultimately is supposed to be an exemplar for the rest of the world.... We've violated fundamental principles... that have guided this country's foreign policy so successfully since 1947.

The New Leadership
24 December 2003 | by teewoodSee all my reviews

What members of the Bush administration said. Why it was all false.

Lots of words about weapons of mass destruction, nuclear weapons, biological weapons, chemical weapons, grave threats, and Al-Qaeda. Nothing about concern or freedom for the Iraqi people, something that came stage center only after the other reasons for the war were exposed as bald-faced lies.

Oscars to Mr. Bush and Mr. Powell for superior acting (lying in a most convincing fashion) and to Mr. Rumsfeld for a chameleonic performance (changing as the story changed).

This is a film every American and Briton should watch.
