Normally, I like movies where the bad guy wins. Arlington Road is an exception. I feel that Oliver cheated. Duping some guy into doing your dirty work for you, while an admirable skill in most endeavors, strikes me as cowardly and pointless in the terrorism game. Isn't the /point/ of creating a martyr to get people to rally behind said martyr? If you're using a guy with no agenda, and leave it looking like he acted alone, what cause is there? Okay, so you killed some people, but come on! Humans breed like rabbits, there will always be more of them. Have you changed any minds? Have you made them afraid of what your organization can do, shown them that they'd best listen to what you have to say and give you what you want? No. You've acomplished nothing except some senseless blowing up of stuff. Don't get me wrong, blowing stuff up is fun and all, but doesn't accomplish much in the way of political statements.
