Film Recommendation

I don't usually make recommendations, but while flipping through cable channels at night in Africa, wondering how on earth, Rudy Giuliani (JoinRudy2008, yeah right) had gone from poll favorite to probably worst-run campaign ever, with Fred Thompson, (Friends for Fred, good luck) a close second, I stumbled on the best documentary movie I have seen since doing the Errol Morris overview, No End in Sight, by Charles Ferguson, a former MIT scholar turned documentary filmmaker.

I've been in Africa mostly, so I didn't know this movie had won the Special Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, but if you haven't seen this movie, it shows bungled, isolated, hasty decision-making with ghastly consequences. Or was it monetarily intentional with entire unaccounted budget lines going to the prince of darkness-controlled Halliburton at the expense of pretty much the rest of the entire world? That is a question that I think begs to be asked over and over again, until it is answered.

One end is in sight as far as this type of team in power, and Iraq was a rot to begin with, and will have to go through cycles anyway, spewing the past both ancient and recent.
