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 bare facts
8 December 2004 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Uncovered: The Truth Behind the War in Iraq" uses the same pundits who have appeared in the national media to make the argument that the Bush administration skewed intel, distorted facts, and rushed America into a war unrelated to WMD or terrorism with unrealistic expectations of outcome. In counterpoise are news snippets of administration officials seen making the case for war and subsequently recanting. Although there is a montage of still pics and video clips sprinkled throughout with some show & tell graphics, the bulk of the film is nonstop talk-to-the-camera dialogue and file footage which serves to compresses post 9/11 events into a digest and overview of the Iraq war issues. This film is long on information and short in entertainment and should be worth a look by anyone who never got a full accounting of why Americans are now fighting and dying in Iraq. (B-)
