• Did you miss The Kingdom when it first came out in 2007? We thought it was a very good action movie, but for some reason it didn’t sit well with the critics. It’s a fictional account a deadly attack on a U.S. facility in Saudi Arabia, and what the U.S. government does in order to bring the culprits to justice. In the movie the good guys win; is that outcome too much to hope for in the case of the real-life killing of the American ambassador and three other Americans in Libya? Go see the movie and then decide for yourself.
