Charlie Wilson's War
Came home early with a beer buzz, so I thought I would check out "Charley Wilson's War" that I got from Netflix!
Absolutely loved it!!
Phillip Seymour Hoffman was a screech as the bottom line CIA guy with cheap dress shirts and ties that were too short. Footage of Afghanistan and Pakistan were very interesting as I visited Karachi with the Navy back in the fabulous 80's.
Hard to believe a hard partying congressman can have such a big effect in the way of the world.
Movie ended with Mujahadeen giving the boot to the Soviets and Charlie asking for even more money to win hearts and minds in Afghanistan and getting none.
We all know what happened after that.
