"Control Room" highly recommended!

I highly recommend seeing the movie "Control Room", the movie about Al Jazeera's coverage of the Iraq war. No anti-Bush tirades, no fake drama, no whiny hand-wringing about evil, just a bunch of normal, concerned people (on both sides) trying to do their jobs.

I would like to meet and talk with all these people, even including the CENTCOM media coordinator.

Have you ever wondered if the Al Jazeera reporters are really the lying, propaganda spewers that Donald Rumsfeld kept saying they were? Here's how to find out! (Hint: remember who you heard that from).

Update: Evidently the CENTCOM media coordinator mentioned above has been muzzled by the Marine Corp. What a shame; he really put a human face on the American Military, and seemed to be the sort of person we wish all our military personnel could be.
