We are all “Fair Game.”

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I’m a big movie buff, but have not had the chance to see that many new films in recent months.  Luckily, I did see the recently released film “Fair Game”-which covers a poisonous Washington controversy about how we got into the war in Iraq.  The book outlines how the White House deliberately revealed the identity of a key CIA operative, whose husband was challenging the Bush Administrations assertion that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. As we have come to find out, there were no such weapons. The bigger issue is how government agencies lie and fabricate to cover up or to just “get” someone, whatever the justification.  The message is simple.  And it’s the same message I have framed by my desk.  “I love my country-It’s the government I’m afraid of.”Â  Go see this film.  And hey, keep your guard up. A review of the film below.
