And here the plot:
Charlie Wilson's War is a 2007 drama film about Democratic Texas Congressman Charlie Wilson (Tom Hanks), who conspired with a rogue CIA operative named Gust Avrakotos (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to launch an operation to help the Afghan Mujahideen during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

Starting left: Charles Wilson and Gust Avrakotos Charles Wilson (the Congressman) and Gust Avrakotos (the rogue CIA agent).

A state should take care not to sow the seeds of its own destruction... Intelligence operations need more than a short-sighted plan: an analysis of the long term implications is necessary.

The topic is hot and the cast is good: so let's go watch this movie when it's released. ;-)
