UnNews:"Green Zone" shocks the nation
18 March 2010
Taking place in Iraq 2003, the film concentrates on the efforts of Matt Damon as he struggles to uncover a plot by forces in the American government to convince the world that Saddam Hussein holds stockpiled Weapons of Mass Destruction or "WMD's".
Karl Devotee from "The Washington Post-observer" says "This daring piece of film-making dares to suggest that the U.S. government knew there were probably no WMD's in Iraq. That they should suggest this a mere six years after the event is daring in the extreme."
The film features warrant officer, Chief Miller (played by Matt Damon), assigned to a special unit whose job it is to seek out WMD's. When his unit starts drawing blanks from the intelligence they've been given, he turns to an English speaking Iraqi for help. After uncovering secret meetings, secret documents, and secret Iraqis, he comes to the realization that certain members of the American government are working against him.
Gillian-Ann Assworthy from "Texas Yesterday" says "There are plenty of guns, and good, honest, decent, patriotic Americans in this film which makes it worth seeing, but the main plot is frankly too far-fetched to be believable. "Green Zone" hints that the American Government was less than truthful when it said that there were WMD's in Iraq, which to be honest, is laughable."
After a personal screening, Ex-president George W. Bush was quoted as saying "Chief Jason Bourne has done excellent work in bringing these discrapancys to light. However, I remain confident that WDM's will be found."
