Captain Bennett Marco (Washington) and Sgt. Raymond Shaw (Schreiber) served together during the Persian Gulf War (the first one), and were part of a platoon of U.S. soldiers who were kidnapped by the enemy, and brainwashed to become pawns once they return home. Now, ten years later, Raymond Shaw is climbing the political ladder, as his mother's (Streep) new husband is a powerful senator helping a presidential candidate. Marco, however, is not dealing with the adjustment after the war as well, and eventually remembers being brainwashed. Knowing that it's just a matter of time before Shaw is called to service by his handler, Marco contacts Shaw to try to get through to him before something terrible
This being brainwashed PC Lefty Hollywood, let me guess who the "enemy" turns out to be. I bet you a million dollars that the big plot turn will show it's all the fault of Republicans, big business, the CIA, the FBI, Halliburton and Enron. When we all know that in real life, there really is a BRAINWASHED Frenchurian Candidate: John Kerry.
