Bruce DíArcus from Miami University in Ohio suggests the documentary, Good Kurd/Bad Kurd, which deals with the Kurdish struggle and how it intersects with U.S. foreign policy: the Kurdish population in Iraq being the "good" ("freedom fighters"), and those in Turkey being the "bad" ("separatists" and "terrorists").  The film does a good job of unraveling these neat geopolitical distinctions, and showing their human costs.Ý He says that his students found themselves wondering about US foreign policy in the Middle East.
