Ok, I just saw the trailer for this upcoming Tom Hanks movie and I can't wait to go see it. The following link will take you to the trailer: http://mftm.blogspot.com/2007/10/charlie-wilsons-war-2007-trailer.html Funny thing is, I have never heard of this congressman before, but I did a little reading on him. Come to find out the trailer seems to portray him fairly accurately. He was basically a hard partying, hard drinking, hedonistic politician, but he decided that the Afghanis would have American military hardware to help them fight the Soviets. And then he used his position in congress to make it happen. Basically he didn't have the authorization to do what he did, but he did it anyway. I couldn't help but laugh at the chutzpah. Anyway, since Hanks is one of my favorite actors I plan on seeing this film when it is released, and thought some of you might be interested as well.
