Oliver Stone Teaming With Pro-Bush ‘Path’ Writer

Cyrus and Stone

The “World Trade Center” filmmaker is heading a project on the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan and the hunt for Osama Bin Laden—written by Cyrus Nowrasteh, the scribe behind the wildly inaccurate ABC undocu-drama “The Path to 9/11.” 

Think Progress:

Nowrasteh is an avowed conservative activist. Last year, he spoke on a panel titled, “Rebels With a Cause: How Conservatives Can Lead Hollywood’s Next Paradigm Shift.” When confronted with his bias, Nowrasteh lied about his political leanings in the Wall Street Journal.

Hey movie buffs,

Maybe Oliver Stone can make a new movie, Natural Born Chickenhawks, starring our pretty boy president Bush in full flightsuit outfit (with the extra large “prominent package” option).

A note of caution, Bush will be needing a dialog coach if there are any three syllable words, or sentences longer than 5 words. I can’t wait to see the new movie. They will be shooting it in technicolor yellow.

Maybe they can get Dennis Miller as a writer too, and make it a comedy. Oh wait, it already is too funny.

And I mean that in a good way. Who can’t laugh that thousands of people are dead because we are trying to protect the American people against terrorists who hate our freedom, even if reasons for the war are based on lies and the president has to take our freedoms away to protect us.

And it is not about the oil. I repeat, not about the oil. And if Halliburton comes out a few billion dollars ahead, what’s not to like?

There is a pretty good Bush and Cheney joke at

waiting for the previews,

With the current neocon conservatism taking over the political spectrum, the media, religions, and now our entertainment (certainly Oliver Stone)—what hope do we have? 

Why do I endlessly see comments on the internet comparing the USA to Hitler’s Nazi Germany!!
