I got to watch this movie last weekend. It seems to elicit strong feelings from Iraq War hawks and doves. But, if people would step outside of their political feelings for a minute, I think they might begin to understand an immutable fact of Middle Eastern history. Right and wrong, friend and foe, even the truth, are based on time and therefore not absolute or enduring.

A lot of viewers expressed that they were confused by what was happening and who actually were the good guys (i.e. the ones on the US side). Welcome to the world of the Middle East. The movie is realistic, purports minimal political agendas and is well acted by actors who you will probably recognize but are not "stars." And when you walk out of the theatre, you'll likely have a much better appreciation for everyone involved in the situation.
