The secrecy we now live under gives credence to any claim of propaganda – who sent out the Zamboni to resurface the ice this time?

Maybe they should give a real film maker, like Michael Moore, the same level of access to the CIA’s Michael Morell. The names are similar, point of view probably isn’t ;) But seriously — the only other film that Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal are known for is “The Hurt Locker” — another piece of military propaganda. Eisenhower warned us about the growth of “Military Industrial Complex”, not the “Military Industry ENTERTAINMENT Complex”, but he might as well have . . .

During the Reign of Little Bush…

There where tapes the CIA made by some “contractors” (these guys weren’t even qualified – one had like a psychology BA) to create the “torture program.” When it become known that the CIA was torturing people, instead of turning the tapes over, they destroyed them forever robbing the American people the truth of what they did in their name.

A pox on our house, a pox indeed.

I’m astounded at how much this film is getting hacked at for being what is basically a war movie. I’m betting there were all kinds of “secret” details gleaned to help make The Longest Day, Tora!Tora!Tora!, Midway and others. This film should be treated no differently. One could sit on either side of the fence and call this “propaganda” or “opening of military secrets” but don’t all war films based on true event do that anyway? What makes this one any different? This whole debate over this piece of drama needs some new perspective before people start getting all bent out of shape and political about it.
