True Story of Charlie Wilson
You've seen Hollywood's version of this remarkable tale, now take the opportunity to look behind the scenes and find out how boisterous Texas congressman Charlie Wilson and aggressive CIA operative Gust Avrakotos (aka "Dr. Dirty") really armed the Afghan Mujahideen in the most expansive campaign in CIA history. The effects of Wilson and Avrakotos' efforts are still being felt around the globe nearly two decades after the fact, making their story as relevant in the new millennium as it was when they first began plotting together back in the 1980s.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As a supplement to Charlie Wilson's War, it's a bit redundant yet fills in enough of the gaps to remain worthy of a peek."
