The Fog of War - Robert Strange McNamara




It's easy to criticize so I'll keep it to a minimum. McNamara wags his finger at the viewer and at Castro if you're paying attention. The only people he doesn't wag his finger at are the power elites whose boots he shined but didn't lick. Nobody makes documentaries about the quiet heroes like say Robin Cook who resigned from the Blair Cabinet rather than have blood on his hands. At least McNamara faces the camera and says his piece unlike say Kissinger who is always in hiding. However by the time somebody comes to make a war documentary of you it's pretty much all over in terms of morality. You don't even get invited to Govcorp unless you're willing to sends millions to their deaths. Kali Yuga living baby.
