Words of wisdom from Dustin Hoffman:
“I believe that [the Bush] administration has taken the events of 9/11 and has manipulated the grief of the country and I think that’s reprehensible,” he told his fellow luminaries in the audience. “I don’t think, like many of us, that the reasons we have been given for going to war are the honest reasons.
“If they are saying it’s about the fact [that Iraq has] biological weapons and might have nuclear weapons and that gives us the liberty to preempt and strike because we think they might hit us, then what prevents Pakistan from attacking India, what prevents India from attacking Pakistan, what prevents us from going into North Korea?
“I believe — though I may be wrong because I am no expert — that this war is about what most wars are about: hegemony, money, power and oil.”
