A Must Watch - Sorry I had delayed watching it
22 August 2017 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

I can't believe this has not had a larger number of viewers. Especially in our current times. This documentary explains so much more than the media covered. It explains most of the threat to our own security starts right here at home and not abroad. It also explains some of the key points where we are making major mistakes in our strategy against terrorism. Why did an Army Major go on a rampage on Fort Hood? Why did two brothers commit the Boston Marathon bombing? This should be required viewing in every High School and University. This is not a campaign to be won by body count.
