Storyline

This extremely powerful 89 minute film presents comprehensive documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up, including military and civilian experimentation, dating back over 60 years. As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of "unknown causes," they wait for answers from their respective governments, but no satisfying or even credible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to negligence and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their "disposable army" mentality. From the first Gulf War the VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 troops are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a "mystery disease." How many more will have to die before action is taken? Written by William Lewis

You Can't Handle The Truth!
21 February 2006 | by colbydogSee all my reviews

If 1/10th of what is revealed in this documentary is true.... we all gotta become Tom Cruise's character Lt Kaffee as he riddles the Col Jessep (Jack Nicholson) on the witness stand. The truths exposed span the last sixty years... starting with the events following WWII leading to the birth of the Military Industrial Complex— the melding of big business, military and government... President Eisenhower warned of the dangers in his farewell address from office. Rokker and the unclassified documents prove his warning.

The information about the DOD's complicity and knowledge of chemical biological weapons bunkers in Iraq during the 1992 invasion is beyond belief. The interviews of Rokker about the Depleated Uranium ammunition the military is using and it's 4.6 million year radioactive half- life causing horrific deformities to civilians as well as our military personnel... is beyond treason. If you leave this film without rethinking our policy of military supremacy, you weren't watching.
