De Palma Blasts U.s. Government Over Iraq War Cover-up

Director BRIAN DE PALMA has attacked the U.S. government and the media for fooling the American public into believing the Iraq war has the full support of the armed forces fighting there. The movie-maker - whose new film Redacted has sparked controversy in the U.S. for its anti-war stance - is furious at American officials for generating pro-war propaganda at the expense of the true facts. He tells British magazine Empire, "The mainstream media doesn't show it (the war) at all. So we don't see the picture, we don't see reporters covering what's actually going on. "So we buy all the spin that comes from the Pentagon. To actually suggest that the soldiers are uncomfortable, angry and resentful is heresy."
