2008 – Body of War: New Doc Tells the Story of a Paralyzed Iraq War Veteran Coming to Terms with Disability and Speaking Out Against War.

As the US occupation of Iraq enters its sixth year, we take a look at a new documentary that captures the struggles of one of the tens of thousands of US troops injured in the war. Body of War is directed by filmmaker Ellen Spiro and veteran broadcaster Phil Donahue. The film tells the story of Iraq war veteran Tomas Young. On April 4, 2004, his fifth day in Iraq, Young’s unit came under fire in Baghdad. He was left paralyzed, never to walk again. Released from medical care three months later, Young returned home to become an active member in Iraq Veterans Against the War. We play excerpts of Body of War and speak with Tomas Young and with filmmakers Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro.

An interesting, informative and factual summary of the US financial health up to the end of the Bush era. It covers the growing deficit and debt of the nation, its effect on Social Security and our heavy dependence on foreign funds.

Most concerning is that this does not cover the enormous spending of the Obama Administration, which is borrowing far more money every year than the highest spending years of the Bush administration. Due to the recession, there is less money to pay the debt than there was three years ago.
