It's funny, I've been reading reviews of THE GREEN ZONE and they all note that there is this liberal streak in it, that questions the reasons for going to war in Iraq. That it's got a political "point of view."
This is not a point of view. This is a fact. We went into Iraq under false pretenses and were directly lied to by people in power. That's not leftist. That's history.
