A story about this — 7 years ago
Robert S. McNamara was both Kennedy and Johnson’s Defense Secretary. Most liberals put him at fault for much of vietnam, the fire bombing of Japan, Hiroshima, and the cold war. What most people don’t know is that he was an incrediblly intelligent, pragmatic, very caring and thoughtful man. This documentary carries the title “Fog of War” to appeal mainly to those who want to understand how decisions are made under the real pressures of war. It is great at that. What is better at is revealing the man Robert s. McNamara. He is thinking through his accomplishments over the course of modern history. His insights into how and why certain major military decisions were made are completely riviting and important. “Astonishing, mesmerizing, and sometimes horrifying!” as one reviewer said doesn’t describe it enough. In these times where it looks like modern concerns and current events are the only things that matter, getting the perspective of McNamara is veryimportant. McNamara tells the story in his own words. In a world of sound bites and headlines, we hardly ever get the real story behind current events. This is the real story. Of course it is McNamara’s story. If you have been programmed to hate McNamara by the liberals you should see this movie to decide for yourself. If you believe in McNamara’s infallability preached by the right, you should see this movie. If you care at all about what goes on in the heads of our leaders during war, you should see this movie.
