"The Fog of War"

Since we're in a documentary mode, I just posted this review of Errol Morris's "The Fog of War" on Twitter: McNamara says everything W & Co should have wanted to know about invading a foreign country but were too arrogant to ask. 9.5 (out of 10) This is one of my all-time favorite documentaries. Great use of archival footage. Real simple. Robert McNamara is so compelling to watch and listen to. And the advice he gives is perfect. It should be required viewing for anyone in the diplomatic corps.
