Starring Americans Billy Zane and Gary Busey, the Turkish film, "Valley of the Wolves Iraq" opens with a true story: On July 4, 2003, in Sulaymaniyah, northern Iraq, troops from the U.S. Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade ransacked a Turkish special forces' office, threw hoods over the heads of 11 Turkish special forces officers, and held them in custody for more than two days. The incident contributed to Turks' growing misgivings about the US-led War in Iraq.
After this plot point however, the film slips into pure fiction as a Jewish-American doctor (Gary Busey) at Guantanamo harvests prisoners' organs for sale to the West's rich folk. The film's anti-US and anti-Semitic themes are upsetting folks in the West.
