Charlie Wilson's War

The movie, Charlie Wilson's War, looks like a good flick. Om Puri playing the sinister President Zia-ul-Haq should be a special treat. Check out the trailer.

The book, which the movie is based on, is quite a good read as well.

It will be interesting to see what Pakistan thinks of the movie since it's mostly an unflattering account of its sordid involvement in Afghanistan, including funding and arming some rather unsavory characters, many of whom are still around today, causing death, destruction and mayhem.
