The first casualty of war is truth

My son and I enjoyed watching the movie Fair Game, based on the true story of CIA Agent Valerie Plame. Her "cover" was blown by the White House, after her husband, Joseph Wilson, wrote a New York Times article contesting some of the "evidence" that was claimed to provide justification for the Iraq war.

It does have a pro-marriage statement. Couples need to stand together and not let others divide them. "They have taken everything from me, but I am not going to let them take away my marriage."

I also like the line, "Does the fact that I am yelling louder than you right now make my argument right."

The speech below at the end of the movie is particularly stirring (even to a non-American).
