These weren't typical right-wing nutjobs, or easy-pickin targets from a Michael Moore film. Those interviewed were all Bush loyalists - people who once believed in the humanitarian aspect of the Iraq war, people Bush himself appointed, as well as generals, experts, etc.
I always looked at Cheney/Rumsfeld/Condoleezza as evil people, but I'm anti-war so no big surprise.
What I didn't know was how stunningly
incompetent they were at carrying out their war. To ignore the advice of generals, people on the ground, and experts in favor of their own crazy plans?
For example: 500,000 well armed, well trained young men ready to serve the new government. Disbanded, unemployed, left to starve. One clip of the riots that followed tells you where muscle of the insurgency came from.
The documentary is made up of interviews and war footage. It's as engaging as it is serious. It's not an easy film to watch, but only because it's frustrating watching pure corruption and incompetence. I searched to find a "rebuttal" or "debunk" to get the other point of view - as you find with most partisan documentaries - but there was none. I guess there's nothing to say when former Bush appointees are doing the talking.
Anyone that does not believe evil is working on this earth needs to watch this film.
Evil before your eyes, undeniable evil.
What else could it be?
Some will say what we have here is stupid, plain and simple..
Stupid that profound has evil as it's puppeteer.
Thanks for the link. Powerful stuff.
