Charlie Wilson's War - 97 minutes of cinematic poon
Thanks to anon for 'nominating' me to take up Craig Murray's offer of free belly dancing tickets for bloggers (life is indeed stranger than fiction). Unfortunately, I'm all tied up with less intriguing commitments and will have to pass on trying to cadge some seats from Craig (thanks to anon for thinking of me though)
Which is a genuine shame as, having just seen the appalling Charlie Wilson's War, it is clear than an appreciation of belly dancing can stand one in good stead in the world of covert operations
Charlie Wilson's War, the answer to the question...
"Is it possible to make a major motion picture about CIA involvement in Afghanistan in the 1980s without mentioning the opium trade?"
