One nation under surveillance for liberty and justice for all. (taglines)
- Terrorism is just an excuse.
- The modern battlefield is everywhere.
- One nation under surveillance for liberty and justice for all.
- The only safe place is on the run.
- It's a very strange thing to do [a story about] an American man, and not be able to finance this movie in America. And that's very disturbing, if you think about its implications on any subject that is not overtly pro-American. They say we have freedom of expression; but thought is financed, and thought is controlled, and the media is controlled. This country is very tight on that, and there’s no criticism allowed at a certain level. You can make movies about civil rights leaders who are dead, but it’s not easy to make one about a current man.
