My wife and went out to the movies last night. No End in Sight (web site) (trailer) is a powerful, scary film, and a surprisingly good way to spend an evening. The director, Charlie Ferguson, does not seem to approach his subject from either a liberal or conservative perspective. He’s not out to prove a point. Rather, he investigates the current state affairs in Iraq — which appears to be a disaster for hundreds of thousands of our troops and vets, and millions of Iraqis — to find out what went wrong and why.
As Ferguson interviews high-ranking army officials, regular grunts, Iraqis, and top Pentagon authorities, I found my jaw dropping again and again. It’s outrageous that Bush and a few of his top guys could shut out the good advice, research, and opinions of so many experts in order to run Iraq their own way, but as Ferguson piles up the evidence, the truth is irrefutable. Worth the $15 bucks a person for a ticket and some popcorn. At the Kendall.
