Jimmy Carter Discusses the Truth Behind ‘Argo’

In an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, former president, Jimmy Carter, talks about the truth behind the 2012 film, “Argo,” the political thriller film directed by Ben Affleck that won Best Picture at the 85th Academy Awards. Carter was president when the events of “Argo” took place, which was when a fake movie crew flew to Tehran, Iran to film a fake movie, “Argo,” so that they could rescue six U.S. diplomats during the Iran Hostage Crisis in 1981. Carter says that he loved the film and that most of it was accurate, but that the main difference was that 90% of the contributions to the plan to rescue the hostages were conceived by the Canadian government, whereas the movie gives almost full credit to the U.S. government.
