The movie Fair Game, starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, captures the life of Valerie Plame-Wilson in the run up to the Iraq war.

It is a must see movie, but bear this in mind: it will piss you off.

It showcases just how corrupt the Republican government was in the years that followed 9/11 and clearly demonstrates that there are still a lot of unanswered questions about what happened to the Wilsons, why they weren’t believed, the shallow evidence that gave way for the Iraq war (something both Stephen Harper and Michael Ignatieff would have joined up with had they been in charge at the time), the morally bankrupt media infrastructure that fuels the lies and a tonne of other questions about the US political landscape.

Again, I’ll repeat:  it is a must see movie.

However, because of its topical nature, it leaves a simple Canuck like me wondering what kind of manipulation we face every day in Canada. The same people that ran the Bush Administration are extremely close to the Harper Administration / Regime.

How much longer should we allow that to continue?
