No End In Sight is an award-winning, critically lauded documentary, and is the first film of its kind to chronicle the reasons behind Iraq’s descent into guerilla war, warlord rule, criminality and anarchy. Hailed as “without question the most important movie you are likely to see this year” by Time, the film is a jaw-dropping, insider’s tale of wholesale incompetence, recklessness and venality.

Dan's experience on the ground in Iraq gives him a unique, insider's perspective on the war and its effects. While in Iraq, he was an advisor to the Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq for the Iraqi elections, and was a consultant to international military forces and local leaders in Baghdad, Basra, Fallujah, and Mosul.

No End In Sight examines the manner in which the principal errors of U.S. policy – the use of insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, the purging of professionals from the Iraqi government, and the disbanding of the Iraqi military – largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today. How did a group of men with little or no military experience, knowledge of the Arab world or personal experience in Iraq come to make such flagrantly debilitating decisions? The film dissects the people, issues and facts behind the Bush Administration’s decisions and their consequences on the ground to provide a powerful look into how arrogance and ignorance turned a military victory into a seemingly endless and deepening nightmare of a war.

It'll be interesting to see, and I'm not sure if I need to bring tissues and/or a barf bag.  I haven't seen the trailer yet, but I've heard great things about the film.

Dan will be preaching to the choir, in large part. But as a constituent in the 10th CD, I'm most curious as to what Dan proposes Congress do about the problems in Iraq, and particularly the problems presented in this film.

It is in the bold section, the tags, and part of the links. Is there anywhere else we should add it in the future?
