The perfect Purim movie

Argo is about a CIA agent working with the Canadians to set up disguises and create fake backgrounds for six people to sneak them out from under the modern-day tyrants of Iran.

It’s also a great movie. So thanks, Canada, for saving my fellow countryman at the risk of your own ambassador’s life. As for the Iranian criticism, well, as the Alan Arkin character in the movie said: Argo fuck yourselves.

The voice-over of Jimmy Carter at the end of the movie is pretty pathetic. He’s actually bragging that all of the hostages were released peacefully. Tell that to the families of the eight servicemen that died in the failed rescue mission.

And Mr. Carter: Argo fuck yourself.

    I haven’t seen the movie, but they seriously had Jimmy Carter say anything about the released hostages and not Ronnie Raygun?

    That’s pathetic.

    I was in Singapore when the failed rescue mission took place. It was sad and embarrassing… even more so because unlike American TV outlets, Asian news stations did not hesitate to show graphic images of the dead Americans and their helicopter, shattered and burnt to a cinder. 1980 was a tough time for our country in so many ways, and having Mr. Carter at the helm did not help. At all.
