The rumored “return of the Progressive Omaha Film Festival” takes a significant step towards fulfillment. Elaine Wells and I will sponsor the film “Dirty Wars” at 7PM on the 18th of August at her Unitarian Church. Located at 3114 Harney St
This film won top awards 10 different times and was nominated 7 times also in a wide variety of categories. More importantly, its relevance to the growth of multiple ISIS type “terror” groups across the Middle East and Africa explains how these various groups have come from minor players of only several hundred to being able to tackle the 300,000 American-trained Iraqi army conquering most of that country's northern half with such ridiculous ease. Along the way they have truly struck terror in the heart of both regions and real consternation in the USA. This is a colossal failure of the tactics and strategies the USA has been using throughout the area with pretty predictable results. There is nothing like repeating the same mistakes month after month, year after year, yet expecting different results.
Come help us revive the film series AND discuss WHY we are clueless as we create even more mortal enemies.
