Hah! I just remembered the name of a film I watched when I was little. Wag the Dog. It's not a good film, but it's... odd to be looking back at it with the Iraq thing and the Hutton Inquiry.

I recently watched Argo, which is not too bad and has some similar themes plus the whole "based on real events" factor.

Was it "based on real events" or just "based on a true story"? I remember a time when they meant the same thing, but not anymore.

Trivia: admins are only capable of making posts in the range from serious business to serious-ish.

They did things that didn't happen, like having the British and Canadian embassies refuse to help, IIRC.
