Valkyrie -

We saw the movie Valkyrie today.  It was not heavily attended, though it opened only yesterday.  I recommend it.  I was on the edge of my seat even though the ending is obvious.  There were many plots to assassinate Hitler.   This one was so well-conceived, so close, and would have saved so many lives that it is beyond tragic that it failed.  I think it is an important movie to see, to honor those who risked their lives and died, trying to eliminate what Hitler was doing and continued to do.  I knew there were failed plots.  I don't know that I fully grasped the courage, intellect, and risk it took to put them into place.  

This movie is excellent in showing the courage we all would love to demonstrate.   It also points out that eliminating the top guy is not always enough.  I think Cheney keeps Bush safe.
