You're being ironic, I trust.

I rather think that "Dirty Wars" should have shown lots of remains, and
sequences of people looking for little burned bits scattered about.
Maybe the film did feature too much of Scahill. He's no Michael Moore.
But a scene showing Obama receiving some gift made from a victim's femur
would have been priceless :)
