Sept. 24: The Real Charlie Wilson
Just got a postcard from Rep. Jim Moran's office announcing this event:
An Evening with Charlie Wilson:I thought Charlie Wilson's War was kind of an odd movie, glamorizing Wilson's partying ways while only making vague references to one of the war's unintended consequences -- the rise of the Taliban and ultimately 9/11. Wilson's story is certainly more complicated than Hollywood can handle in a couple of hours.
