Control Room is an intensely powerful documentary featuring a different side of the Iraq War—a side not written to promote American propaganda, the media or the military, and how those entities, media, military, and journalism create and maintain wars around the globe. Control Room gives real-life, graphic accounts of the beginning of the Iraq War, as seen by the people of Iraq, from the United States’ introduction of nuclear weapons found to be held by Saddam Hussein, to the infamous Bush speech touting “mission accomplished”. This documentary shows the Iraqi confrontation in a different light, in a human light. One thing I think the American public needs to see is an event from a different angel, from the eyes of living individuals. These individuals are not just targets, they have lives and loved ones. This film offers a different take on occurrences which may appear objective and clear, concerning the United States military actions and their media counterparts.
