Solid entertainment showing the evils of the Cheney/Bush era. Penn even does a decent job of acting for the first time since snowman.

This was a very good movie that exposes the truth about our government. Sean Penn character, Ambassador Joe Wilson, challenges the news that was coming out of the White House that Sadaam had weapons of mass destruction, when in fact he didn't. I also noticed that the Wilsons neighbors debating about the war, were so adamant that the government was right in what they were doing. But that the problem: Most working class Americans don't know what they are talking about when it comes to politics, religion or the rights of others diverse people. It was too bad that the government had to smear the Wilsons good name but in the end, the truth came out that the government, not the Wilsons, was the bad guy.

Good movie, worth a watch. Based on true events and still entertaining. Good ole USA always at the top of the power pyramid and a look at what they will do to stay there. Saddam was a tyrant, but...lying just to start a war? But I am sure a lot worse happens in the name of "peace".
Again, good movie.

Unfortunately, Ms. Plame - - whom I do respect although she still believes in Boy Scout America - - American Exceptionalism - - may never get it. She is being successfully contained at some sort of think tank against the spread of WMDs - - where there directors are Central Bankers ? ? ? ? The purpose was to shut down the Brewster Jennings operation as it was getting too close to the point of origin of those WMDs, VX gas, they were caught smuggling across the Turkish border into Iraq, which would have eventually led back to a section within the Pentagon. Her career somewhat mirrors Bob Baer's career, another CIA operative who forever remain clueless.

Extremely well done. Of course the subject matter is all took up with Bush (Cheney, that is) shenanigans. Seeing Bush now is worse than a nightmare; I have to achieve enlightenment to wake up from this. >>>>> Could have been a soaring thriller if not for defending against the 'crimes-for-money' fiction that was/is US foreign policy; you know, making sh__ up and not answering for it. >>>>> Syria, make room for Daddy.......

Worth seeing for two scenes where Bush officials insist that non-evidence is evidence.

An American neo-liberal film. Although it elicided the audience's sympathy and did clearly portray the manipulations of the Bush administration, it is worth remembering that Plame was a CIA agent.
