It's a must watch for anyone who wants to know WHY things are happening the way they are in Iraq. And, it's also a must see for anyone who's interested in watching the United States of America admit and accept to the fact that it f****** up...big time.
I've seen quite a few documentaries based on 9/11 and it's aftermath and I can say without much hesitation that this has been the most hard-hitting of them all. And this is not because of an expansive conspiracy theory laying the foundations for the film or emotional interviews and graphic depictions of war that would force you to have an emotional outburst for a few minutes, only for you to get on with your life after that. Instead, it has facts presented by the very same people who directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowlingly helped orchestrate the farce that the war on Iraq was. With first hand admission of screw-up's by the who's who of the US intelligence and defence communities, it's hard to ignore what this documentary has to say.
To sum it up, it tells you how and why the Iraq war has proven to be a $1.8 Trillion dollar ugly mole, surgically implanted to scar the face of the US for a very, very long time to come. Plus, it justifies the throwing of boots on George W. Bush with aplomb. So, Mr.Rumsfeld, do you want a Prada or would Hush Puppies suffice? :)
