"There were times in the 90s when things were so prosperous... I mean, when Reagan was still around, I made 'Salvador' attacking the Reagan administration in Central America. Perhaps I'm a contrarian. It seems to me 2006 is a far darker time than 2001. Those of you who remember that day would have seen how united the world was--the world was with America, had great empathy with America, and did again, maybe not as much, for the war in Afghanistan. But that has all changed. Now we have serious problems--more deaths, more terrorism, more constitutional breakdown in my own country. It's a disgrace, what's happened." Mark Lawson speaks with Oliver Stone transcribed in The Guardian.
