New York Post: New Matt Damon Flick Slanders America

Posted by iusbvision on March 16, 2010

Yet another Iraq War flick from the Hollywood left that no one will see. They all have one thing in common, they demonize our troops and paint them to be reckless or stooges.

The Hurtlocker, the Iraq film that got so much attention at the Oscars, has been criticized by troops.  It generated only 15 million at the box office. Come to find out the story was “appropriated” from the life of a soldier that the writer was embedded with as a journalist so the film makers are being sued by the soldier (appropriation is akin to plagiarism).

NY Post:

After all of Hollywood’s Iraq movies have flopped (even the Oscar-garlanded “The Hurt Locker” earned only $15 million at the box office), one studio thinks it has the following secret to success: The previous films didn’t insult the United States enough.

“Green Zone,” opening Friday, is a $100 million slime job that conjures up a fantastically distorted leftist version of the war and wraps it around a frantic but preposterous action picture.

Even for Hollywood, “Green Zone” is dumbfoundingly brazen in its effort to rewrite the facts. As any reasonably informed person knows, many intelligence services (including the French, German, Chinese, Russian and British) believed Iraq had WMDs. And the CIA (which along with Chief Miller is a hero of “Green Zone”) was among them. Plus, such intel reports predated the Bush administration — and Saddam’s refusal to allow the UN weapons inspectors to finish their work gave us every reason to think he was hiding something and sealed his fate.

It’s one thing to make a fantasy film laced with snarky jibes at the United States and its military. It’s of another order entirely for an American studio (Universal, a unit of GE) to perpetrate, during an ongoing war, such vicious anti-American lies disguised as cheap entertainment.
