Local Happening--Tuesday Nite
The first film of its kind to chronicle the reasons behind Iraq's descent into guerilla warfare, warlord rule, criminality, and anarchy, writer/director Charles Ferguson's jaw-dropping documentary is an insider's tale of wholesale incompetence, recklessness and venality. Ferguson examines how the principal errors of U.S. policy largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today. And it asks the question: How did a group of men with little or no military experience, knowledge of the Arab world, or personal experience in Iraq come to make such flagrantly debilitating decisions? (102 mins) Guest speaker on Tues, 9/11: David Swanson, the Washington Director of Democrats.com and of ImpeachPAC.org. He is co-founder of the AfterDowningStreet.org coalition, a board member of Progressive Democrats of America, and past Press Secretary for Dennis Kucinich's 2004 Presidential campaign. His website is www.davidswanson.org. Pre-film reception at Azar's (at 20th & Colley Ave) at 5:30pm.
Film will be shown at 7:15 p.m. at the Naro Cinema.
