Winter Soldier

So, last night we watched Winter Soldier. It was a really well done documentary that has obviously stood the test of time. (Click here to learn more about the Winter Soldier Investigation from Wikipedia.)

I wanted to cry when I saw the way that several of the soldiers were smiling in an effort to deal with what they'd seen and done. Several stories made this well-read, history-loving writer gasp and just sit slack-jawed as straight-faced veterans rattled off lists of atrocities they'd personally contributed to.

Anyone who thinks war (in Iran, maybe?) is a "good idea" should view this film before making any decisions about placing our soldiers in harm's way.
