Q1: Scranton argues that " A lot of us are very uncomfortable with having conversations about way because we're worried that we disagree," What is she implying about the effect of war on the American public?
Q 2: WHY WOULD SCRANTON USE HANDHELD FOOTAGE FROM ACTIVE MILITARY?
Q 3: IN HER REVIEW OF "THE WAR TAPES," POST WRITER ANN HORNADAY ASKED: " IS IT TO MUCH TO ASK THAT 'THE WAR TAPES,' A RIVETING, AUDACIOUS NEW DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE IRAQ WAR, BE REQUIRED VIEWING IN EVERY CLASSROOM AND LIVING ROOM IN AMERICA? OR AT LEAST THE OVAL OFFICE?" WHY IS THE FILM IMPORTANT TO OUR UNIT?
