Detailed Review of “Why We Fight”
The review makes it clear that the movie is manipulative and dishonest.
More effective are those characters with an actual story arc — like Sekzer, who responded to Bush’s assertion of an Iraq-Al Qaeda link by asking the military to inscribe his son’s name on a weapon headed for Iraq. In no short time he got a message reporting that a 2,000-pound guided bomb had been dropped in loving memory of his son and “met with 100 percent success.” When the president later denied any link between Iraq and 9/11, Sekzer was stunned.But in fact the Bush administration never claimed a link between Iraq and 9/11. There most certainly was a link between Iraq and terrorism. And indeed, the 9/11 Commission found several links between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda, but no “collaborative relationship.”
Jarecki has accepted a bogus leftist talking point.
