Bush’s War

If you haven’t seen it already, Frontline: Bush’s War is an extraordinary look behind the scenes into why we went to war in Iraq. I’m looking forward to watching what seems like the opposite bookend: Bad Voodoo’s War, the story of a platoon of National Guard soldiers in Iraq.

    Two words: “banality of evil”.

    That’s what I walked away with and the near monotony of the FrontLine narrative just amplifies this sense.

    Only a small crowd will have watched this all the way though but the good thing is that (at the risk of soundnig self-congratulatory) this crowd is the thinking crowd.

    Thanks for the heads-up on Bad Voodoo … a must see. Here we have Nat’l Guardsmen, or as Naomi Klein calls them for how the NeoCons see and use them: “cheap, expendable, temp soldiers”.

    Thank you for putting the link to the Frontline program. I started watching, but it was running long and it was waaay pass my bedtime. I was utterly amazed how one person could have so much power and how the country could be so deceived.
