Shock and Awe
The film Shock and Awe is a reminder that the Bush administration got this country into a war on very flimsy evidence. The war in Iraq was sold to the American people as retaliation for 9/11, defending the US from weapons of mass destruction. 15 years later, we have lost thousands of young soldiers and have no evidence of these weapons. This film follows a group of journalists who pursued this story before the 2003 war began. It is a painful reminder of where this began, for apparently no reason at all. This film is excellent. The story is very sad.
