Marine Veteran Hopes New Film Reveals Real Iraqi War

(CNSNews.com) - In his new documentary "Outside the Wire '07," U.S. Marine veteran J.D. Johannes documents firefights between U.S. troops and al Qaeda and examines the troop surge in Baghdad. One segment of the film, "Anbar Awakens," tells how the surge's new strategy of putting troops in villages -- and outside of the Green Zone -- has resulted in Iraqis turning against insurgents."Through a great series of events and the blessings of God, I got to go over and see this war firsthand, watch history unfold and record it on videotape," Johannes told Cybercast News Service at last week's Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., where he screened the "Anbar Awakens" portion of his documentary.
