A couple places (notably this IBD editorial) suggest the movie has a Hollywood slant. OK, maybe it does, though for someone my age you have enough knowledge of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the role of the US with the mujaheddin in western Pakistan to put the proper history around it. You don't need to be an expert. It might have been nice to have seen Reagan at least once in the movie. But that appears an error of omission than commission, and it bothers one less. John Fund today wonders what happened to "Scoop Jackson Democrats" like Charlie Wilson. I wonder if Scoop Jackson would even be a Democrat. If this is how Dewayne Wickham treats Joe Lieberman, what would he do with a Charlie Wilson?
