I don’t know if you’ll be able to hear this audio clip with any clarity, but it’s Syriana director-writer Stephen Gaghan telling an oddly humorous story during an interview a couple of nights ago with Variety editor Peter Bart. It’s about a visit Gaghan made to the home of high-level conservative and Iraq War-supporter Richard Perle in early 2003 just before the invasion of Iraq, and what happened when former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu dropped by, and how Perle’s dog (whose name is “Reagan”) related to Netanyahu, and how Netanyahu responded.
