Whether you like the film or not the fact remains there where no WMD and it was a pretence to War and the world has never been the same since, if a government can lie about one thing then they can lie about anything - open your eyes people.

The way i look at the movie is regardless whether jessica biel is there for the pretties is that future generations will be made aware of what happened and what led up to the war in iraq, iran and afghanistan War and the "War on terror" which includes North West Pakistan, Somalia and Syria.

It also shows why they want to stop free speech and alternative media, and control social media.

Watch and listen and then do your own research.
