The Ground Truth
Sometimes the greatest act of courage is to tell the truth.
"The Ground Truth listens. Directed by Patricia Foulkrod but really written by the men and women whose tours of duty it describes, this short, sharp documentary is not about George Bush or left/right politics or 9/11. It's not even really about the war in Iraq. It's about the U.S. soldiers who are fighting that war: why they went, what they saw, how they feel when they come back.
"Of all the recent films on the subject -- and they have been many and worthy -- this may be the most necessary to audiences at home. The Ground Truth is the documentary any American with an opinion on our involvement in Iraq owes it to his or her conscience to see.
"You could pretend that what The Ground Truth shows and tells doesn't exist, but the film makes it extremely difficult. 'There is nothing honorable about what we did,' says a returned National Guardsman. The issue isn't that some veterans feel that way. The issue is that even one does." ~ Boston Globe
