Quotes

Tim Dugan, civilian interrogator (as himself): You gotta consider yourself dead, and if you come back, you're just a lucky bastard, you know. But if you're there, and you consider yourself already dead, you can do all the shit you have to do. I wouldn't recommend a vacation to Iraq anytime soon.

User Reviews

 
Lord John Dalberg-Acton's Quote Applies
11 June 2017 | by aphrodisiaciixSee all my reviews

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority, still more when you super-add the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it."

This is so true and applicable to the Bush,Jr. administration, from the top down. We have a cowardice for Commander in Chief, so are his cabinets and his generals. They should stand trial in the Hague for their war crimes.

If what was said about General Sanchez (by Brigadier General Karpinski) in the documentary is true, then he is a bully and a coward.
