In this hour-long interview with several important people in the US and abroad, Robert Greenwald tells a compelling story. To tell the story of an attack that took place some time ago in the United Kingdom, he would have to tell the story of many Americans who have come home, their families, their friends, and even their enemies, to see this story, while he wouldn't have much time to tell his own story, which is why he is doing this interview. I knew about the Iraq war for many years, but I've never really been interested in politics. However, this film changed my perspective. I had never heard anything about the Iraq war until this film. I was shocked. I never thought that this country would be involved in war, especially with the declaration of war against Iraq. However, I wasn't really aware of the problems that the people there were facing. In this film, Robert Greenwald tells the story of the war in Iraq and what caused it. The interviews are from various parts of the world, and he answers questions from different parts of the world. These are the people that Robert Greenwald has interviewed. They tell the stories of the people in Iraq and all the problems they face. However, the people in the interview are very passionate about the war in Iraq. I think it was important for me to know the people who were in Iraq. For those who are interested in seeing this film, I highly recommend it. It is very well done and I found it extremely important. I would say that this is a great film, and it should be watched by everyone. It is important that we all know what is going on, and that we all have an opinion. It is very important that we all have the power to speak up for ourselves. If we don't, then the future is going to be very scary, very violent, very scary, and very sad. We should all be very aware of the dangers that we face, and I think that this film is very important in showing us what is going on. I would also like to talk about the film's subject matter. The film focuses on the war in Iraq, but it also talks about the war in Afghanistan, and many other things. It is a great film, and it should be watched by everyone.

In his usual manner, director Andrew Adams has created a stunning visual masterpiece of the human soul in the form of "The Kingmaker," a four-hour documentary that exposes the failures of the military and the chaotic, but still influential, CIA in the pursuit of world domination. "Kingmaker" is a series of interviews with those who were part of the various attempts to overthrow the governments of Iran, Syria, and Iran-Iraq-Kuwait. We learn the methods used by the CIA in bringing these regimes to heel, and we hear how CIA officials justified their actions as part of the "lessons learned" of their previous experiences. "Kingmaker" is a powerful and penetrating examination of the CIA's (and other intelligence agencies') use of violence, murder, and espionage in pursuit of regime change. This is a major contribution to the growing body of work documenting the CIA's involvement in regime change in other countries, most notably Libya and Cuba. Adams shows us how the CIA took advantage of its access to highly placed intelligence officials, and how its operatives routinely engaged in the types of activities that led the CIA to engage in the overthrow of governments. Adams also takes us on a personal journey to learn more about the CIA's most important role in the events of the Middle East. Adams' subjects include former CIA director William Casey, the former head of the U.S. embassy in Beirut, Bob Baer, a CIA officer who was responsible for the CIA's involvement in the overthrow of Libya's ruler Muammar Qaddafi, and the late Philip Agee, a former CIA officer who was responsible for the overthrow of the Syrian government. These individuals reflect upon the various ways in which the CIA chose to engage in regime change. Their insights about the CIA's actions are reflected in their own unique way. Adams also makes the point that the CIA was more concerned with "waging war" than it was with promoting democracy. This is certainly the case with the people who made the decision to topple the government of Iran and Syria. Adams' argument is clear. The CIA pursued a policy of promoting violence and regime change in the Middle East, and it did so through its proxy organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). The CIA also instigated the overthrow of the governments of Iraq and Libya. The directors of the CIA and the State Department, under pressure from the White House, decided to initiate the overthrow of the governments of Iran and Syria. The program was initiated not by the CIA but by the White House. "Kingmaker" provides an excellent window into the CIA's failures in the Middle East and its attempts to overturn the governments of Iran, Syria, and Libya. This is a powerful film that will be of great importance to anyone who wants to learn more about the CIA and its practices. It is the best documentary I've ever seen about the CIA's involvement in regime change in the Middle East. It is important to understand the CIA's "lessons learned" in order to appreciate what the CIA did in the Middle East. Adams' film is also a valuable book that anyone can read. I highly recommend it.

Martin, here in the US for the first time since 2008, is giving a lecture about this film and the saga it has become, as a turning point in Hollywood's "right-wing" effort to rewrite the story of Queen Elizabeth I. By focusing on the marriage of the young William and the late Jane, and the disaster that it was, the film makers managed to land a few hits with their one liners and entertaining visual stories. However, it would be a crime to overlook the great political (and even moral) implications of the Kingmaker itself. In a nutshell, it was a moment in British history where a tiny group of men, led by Lord Lancaster, the puppet leader of the House of Lords, rose up against the strong hand of Parliament and the reigning monarch. Lancaster's main argument is that King James VI of Scotland is too decadent and decadent, and thus, should not be allowed to retain the crown. His methods are brutal and ruthless: if a woman is found to be unfaithful to her husband, the king has a good chance of getting rid of her and marrying her off to some other man. Even more, if a man is found to be unfaithful to his wife, the king can turn him into a "macho" killer. After one such man was executed for his sexual "adultery", James II declared war on the Scots. As a result, the King of England had an opportunity to rule England. Unfortunately, he did not. The situation was so desperate that Lord Lancaster (played brilliantly by Hugh Bonneville) had no choice but to go to war with the Scots. This is where the film really got interesting, as Bonneville and two other men, one of whom is played by Paul Bettany, the other by Sir Ian Holm, get to speak for the "pro-war" side of the lobby. They are not afraid to speak openly about the injustice of war. The audience can see the disgust and humiliation in the faces of the leading members of the "pro-war" lobby, who have had their careers ruined and careers destroyed by the war, by having their men dishonorably executed by the king and then being forced into service under his command. And when one of the leading members of the pro-war lobby says that the "whole thing was a mistake", the audience is just as shocked and disgusted. These men are speaking out against a war that would have killed millions and taken hundreds of thousands of lives, but instead, they are fighting for the war they have been promised by their king. Instead of going to war for England, they are fighting for the king's honor, which is the same honor as fighting for the king's army. The film would have been better served if it had allowed the audience to see that this argument was the core of the pro-war lobby's argument. Instead, the film dwelled too much on the personal flaws of those involved, which made it a bit boring and unfocused. And if that weren't bad enough, the film was given a director who did not care about historical accuracy. Perhaps the best scene in the film was the screening of the original Kingmaker, which has been in the public domain for years. The audience is treated to a whole-screen "overhead shot" of King James II, in full military regalia, standing behind the royal family, with all of his men standing in his army, and the royal family smiling in the background, surrounded by their army. The audience is treated to the same scene, except that the King of England and his army have not gathered, as they have with other movies, at the end of the war. In fact, the film even shows the king sitting on the throne, and his troops sitting in the background, and the people laughing and cheering. This is simply not right. You can't have a war movie without a war scene. I felt that the filmmakers were trying to play on the audience's emotion. They were trying to make us feel sad and angry and disappointed. In a way, that was successful, but that wasn't the only reason why this film was a failure. The film makers should have made the film a bit more objective. It would have made for a more true to life, and less
