Only toward the end is a narrator employed to fill in gaps and move the story forward. If I had to rate it on effectiveness in provoking thought, I give it an 8. But if I had to rate it on journalistic thoroughnessI give it a 4. Unfortunately, a question that isn't asked or answered is why young men who have been living in the west would dare venture from Pakistan into the war zone in Afghanistan for vacation within one month of September 11. While the answer to that question is irrelevant to how justice should be administered, the failure to address it simply plays into the hands of those on the right. Expand

The film/whatever you want to call it feels incomplete, in a sense, and it just doesn't include much food for thought. I'm a liberal, and I dislike Bush, but I believe the directors of this film should've been thinking more along the lines of "Let's show what we know happened, and make the audience form their own opinions" instead of "Let's show what happened, and at the same time tell the audience what they should believe".
