If you are talking about the movie Syriana, then I can say that the only thing in common with the book by Bob Bahr is that both "stars" were agents of the CIA. The book makes perfectly clear that the mayhem in Lebenon was caused by funding from Iran. To my rememberance, Saudi oil played NO PART in the memoires of Mr. Bahr. In short, the movie was a complete bastardization of the book in order to make a tired political point.
While walking out of the theatre my only thought was "I hope Bob got paid a pile of dollars..."


Indeed, Babs, I was using the title of the movie to make a point that ours is a disease more than a show. But I have actually not seen the movie or read the book, so far.
