Three stories told simultaneous in ninety minutes of real time: a Republican Senator who's a presidential hopeful gives an hour-long interview to a skeptical television reporter, detailing a strategy for victory in Afghanistan; two special forces ambushed on an Afghani ridge await rescue as Taliban forces close in; a poli-sci professor at a California college invites a promising student to re-engage. Decisions press upon the reporter, the student, and the soldiers.Written by

When Janine is riding past the White House in the taxi near the end of the movie, her view of the White House, as represented during her passing, cannot be obtained from a taxi since those streets are closed to vehicular traffic. Also, her view of the rows of graves in Arlington Cemetery during the same sequence cannot be obtained from a taxi since the paved paths in Arlington are closed to ordinary vehicular traffic as a taxi would be.

Senator Jasper Irving:
Through precise military action, we will take the essential first step.
First step? But what have we been doing for the past six years, Senator? World War II took less than five.

Sounds like a preaching, but it has its good valid points
I saw the movie last night as part of a free view/screen. I will say this much, I would pay 10 dollars to see it. If you are a conservative close minded individual who thinks George Bush is mistake free and he is the greatest mind of this century, then this movie is not for you. However, if you are an open minded person then this movie has its good points about our government, our country's policies, and the bravery of American soldiers that may make you think and start conversation with your family and friends about what you can different with this country.
I believe the movie is worth seeing. I will also say, that there is a character in the movie where I felt he was preaching to me as oppose to having a conversation with the other character in the movie. Again, I will say that the movie will make think about who you are as an American, and what you do for your country.
You should see it....
