Somehow this will be Hillary's fault, too.

Uhm, okay. Hero?

Was that under CIA Director George H. W. Bush?

The "special" Bush/Clinton friendship should be viewed akin to the friendship between Al Capone and Lucky Luciano.

There was this Unsolved Mysteries case about two teens being murdered and laid upon a train track so the train would run over them. I cant remember where I read this but the parents of one of the kids is certain that Clinton was involved somehow.

This is the case

Strange, strange case. It involves allegations of CIA drug running

Clinton used to dodge all the questions about the Arkansas connection to the Contras. The question then and now was Nixonian i.e. "What did he know and when did he know it?" The far scarier and more criminal movie could be made about Clinton's Arkansas prison system selling blood plasma for profit from Aids infected inmates and making the spread of Aids far more widespread. Hollywood will never touch that one however!

So how does the typical Ron Howard feel-good movie get fit into CIA and drug-running.

Did Howard finally derp off into the sunset?

Bill Clinton = Robert Baratheon

Hillary Clinton = Cersei Lannister

Anyone remember

The Clinton Body Count?
 
2014-02-10 11:03:43 PM  
This is the movie about the smuggler. Apparently the story they are going for is that the It was all done without regean, Bush sr, and Clintons knowledge.

Since Howard is a known liberal, I doubt he's gonna try to screw over Clinton.
 
2014-02-10 11:03:56 PM  
CIA running drugs? Ridiculous. The LA Times, NY Times, and Washington Post all agreed that reporter was just wacka-doodle.

/until decades later when they agreed he was right.

Aside from the whole "he's dead" angle, I imagine they will go with Jonah Hill.

Damn, right in Clinton's backyard. The CIA is one ballsy bunch. Can you imagine what would have happened if Clinton found out?

Wait, are you saying that BlowJob Billy wasn't really the Librulest Librul that ever Librulled, and may in fact have helped Saint Reagan and Bush The Greater cover up covert shenanigans?

I was challenged by my wife to find an american movie where a major politician was murdered with just cause, and the movie encouraged doing so, based on Teaparty logic.

All up and down 71 there are random little air strips in cow pastures. I live in Arkansas and on that side of the state in particular.


Hay Bill! Go Hill 2016!

Well, according to Cocaine Cowboys, redneck pilots played a major part in pipelining drugs into America, so it makes sense that some Arkansas boys would also get involved at some point.

Generation_D: So how does the typical Ron Howard feel-good movie get fit into CIA and drug-running.

Did Howard finally derp off into the sunset?



Looking at Frost/Nixon, Rush, The Missing, Ransom, and even parts of Beautiful Mind, he doesn't seem too timid about taking on darker material or movies with unlikable characters.

Awesome restaurant by the way.

Looks straightforward to me. Two kids get caught witnessing a drug deal, get beaten to death and put on a train track. No CIA involved, though the ME was incompetent, ruling this an accident, and ruling another case, where a man was beheaded, as death by natural causes, explaining the lack of a head as "the dog ate it". (They like to tie that one to this case, too, despite that death happening 3 months before these guys' deaths.)

But then, the Clinton Body Count is a list that includes Clinton's mother's chiropractor and Clinton's mother's chiropractor's attorney, so...

Dennis Hopper already played this guy in a made for TV movie called Double Crossed.  So technically...it is a remake.

Ron Howard's going to make it, huh?  That means you can count on it being full of shiat.

Downey wouldn't have even done that movie if he'd found out before signing that they were going to be using fake heroin in the drug running scenes.
