More Hollywood propaganda...

Charlie's movie
It couldn't have been Reagan that won the Cold War... it must have been a sophmoric partying Senator, "Good Time Charlie"... and:
...the movie promotes the left-wing myth that the CIA-led operation funded Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda and ultimately produced the attacks of September 11, 2001...

That anti-American aspect of the film, namely that the Afghan operation ultimately caused the September 11 attacks, reportedly was altered after protests from Mr. Wilson and his former fiancee, Joanne Herring....

"Senior people in the Reagan administration, the president, [CIA Director] Bill Casey, [Defense Secretary Caspar] Weinberger and their aides deserve credit for the successful Afghan covert action program, not just Charlie Wilson," -- Fred Ikle, the undersecretary of defense in the Reagan administration...

Bin Laden, the officials said, never got CIA funding or weapons, and was not directly involved in Islamist extremist activities until years after the Afghan operation ended after the withdrawal of Soviet troops in 1989.
I knew it the second I saw the first TV ad... Just ask yourself what kind of movie Alan Sorkin of TV's propaganda series 'West Wing' would make... because he did. This one.
