I finally watched what was supposedly one of the best films of 2005, 'Syriana'. The layered plot about the machinations of the oil interests and government made for compelling watching. The disjointed nature of the film contributed to a deliberate disorientating experience. The dialogue strangely enough consisted only of people 'speaking quietly' throughout, pretty much devoid of emotion. A strange effect.
Regarding the targeted Predator UAV attack on a member of the royalty, if the CIA were really that competent, there would not have been such rogue leaders of nations and organisations running loose.
