Get in the Control Room

A quick note for those of you who like documentaries. Rent "Control Room," the film about Al Jazeera's coverage of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

It's a moving depiction of how the U.S. is perceived by the Middle East. And not the fundamentalist, Islamist wackos, but insight from educated, moderate, objective journalists who happen to be working for the Qatar news network. An interesting look at the inside of this small news agency in a tiny country surrounded by the chaos of political and cultural struggle.

It reminded me of what a complete dick Donald Rumsfeld is, especially regarding foreign policy, and how he revels in manipulating the American psyche to his own devices.
