    that was one of the first movies I thought about when 9/11 was going down. Didn't they lock all the muzzies in a camp? Including Det. Monk?

    The sad thing is this movie watches not like a movie but a news reel and a terrorist road map. There are so many things happening now that this movie is not far from correctly depicting.

    I was part of a test audience for that movie before it came out. So many people say, "Meh, this is bullshit; it could never go that far here."

    Yeah I don't think I've watched it in a long time. It really hit's home. Hollywood wouldn't make a movie like this now. Isn't Bruce the badass general that goes to far? I'll have to do some research.

    Remember when they were pulling people out of their houses at gunpoint in Watertown when looking for the Marathon bomber? Boston strong.

    I read the wiki I guess the camel jockey's got really butt-hurt by this movie. It sucks they arrested General Devaraux he was doing God's work. The article also mentioned it was the most rented movie after 9/11

    Yeah, they locked them all up, even Monk. He hadn't even done anything wrong and he still got put in.

    It was a screening in Redwood City, CA... Three years later I was working in TV news in San Francisco on 9/11. As we remember, flight 93 was going to SFO, and quite a few on that flight were from all over the Bay Area. So, not impossible that somebody in the theater that day knew of somebody, at least through people.

    Great movie, Denzel is the best. Another great movie is The Kingdom with Jaime Fox, chilling line at the end.

    I just watched the 60 minutes piece where they were talking about 28 pigs of Intel that were redacted from the 9/11 report regarding the material support given to the hijackers by those in the Saudi government. A few former congressmen have been trying to get it unredacted all these years. Just another example of how we are the Saudis bitch thanks to our dependence on fossil fuels.
