Moriarty and I watched Argo, the film starring and directed by Ben Affleck. The movie is about a CIA plot to rescue six Americans who had a close call in Iran back during the Carter administration. They got out, but were not out of the Iranian woods, by any means. They weren't among the many hostages taken and held for 444 days.
There is much to be said about this flick. But one of my take aways is how the U.S. government and the Canadian government collaborated, worked together to get this thing done. And yeah. I can't help but think about...
That was then. This is now.
When Congress and the White House can't get together and solve a Big Problem.
When the Dems and the GOP are as far apart as those who speak Farsi are from those who speak with a southern and Brooklyn accent in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Argo is one hell of a movie, based on one hell of a story. That was kept secret for decades. There's so much we groundlings don't know. We rant and we rave about what went wrong in Benghazi.
Our rants are based on.
We don't know shit. The guy Ben Affleck played was a hero. He got the highest award an intelligence officer can get. A medal. Then the medal was taken away from him a few seconds after he got it. There's so much we don't know. Benghazi? I don't even want to go there. But if you're among those who are outraged by the " lack of good information " coming out of the White House..
Argo Fuck yourselves.
