It's not only Iran that's miffed over the historical accuracy of the Oscar-winning film Argo. The parliament of New Zealand today (Tuesday) unanimously passed a motion expressing regret that the director of the movie Argo saw fit to mislead the world about what actually happened. The movie suggests that the New Zealand embassy in Tehran refused to help in the escape of six American diplomats -- when in fact, in the words of the motion, our courageous New Zealand diplomats' inspirational actions were of significant help to the American hostages. The motion called for the factual and historic record to be corrected and criticized Prime Minister John Key for not sending a strong protest message to Hollywood. Meanwhile, the Associated Press is reporting that Iranian officials are considering filing a lawsuit against the producers of Argo alleging that the movie represents a violation of international cultural norms and a propaganda attack against our nation and entire humanity. However, the wire service observed, It remains unclear what specific charges Iran could raise and what court Tehran could turn to if the action goes ahead.
