Leftwing British Director To Make Haditha Movie

From those celebrants of terror at Reuters:

Nick Broomfield

U.K. documentary maker to probe Haditha deaths

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain (Hollywood Reporter) – The death of 24 civilians in the Iraqi city of Haditha in what witnesses there say was a massacre by U.S. Marines is the subject of Nick Broomfield’s next movie, the British director said.

Broomfield, known for pop-culture documentaries like "Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam," "Kurt & Courtney" and "Biggie and Tupac," said here Friday that he will use dramatic reconstruction rather than traditional techniques to tell the story…

Broomfield said shooting on the film will begin in November in Jordan. "We met with some of the survivors of the massacre who had a lot of material that they filmed, which gave us a very detailed idea of what happened," he said. "We talked to members of the insurgency because I felt the insurgency is almost like a concrete wall. It’s like, who are these insurgents? "

Broomfield also tracked down some of the Marines involved in the incident. "These are 18-year-old kids, a lot of whom are gang members, never even finished high school, went straight into the Marines, went through Fallujah and just got into that killing zone," he said. "They’re not bad guys; they’re just doing what they’re trained to do." …

In the UK’s Guardian this intellectual titan is quoted as saying:

"It’s a narrative film," said Broomfield. "You don’t want to end up stymied by everything having to be completely authenticated.

Of course propaganda can't be bothered with facts.

Heck, even Slate says Broomfield is a sleaze who has "obvious limitations as an investigator."

Of course with this production he will magically "grow" in the eyes of our America-hating media.

We talked to members of the insurgency because I felt the insurgency is almost like a concrete wall. It’s like, who are these insurgents?

Er, Mr. Broomfield, why talk to the "insurgents," if the victims were just innocent civilians killed by American gang members?

It’s like, what have they got to do with anything?
