These days the Mossad is a more glamorous intelligence outfit than the CIA. Consequently films about the CIA tend to be pretty vapid, chic Hollywood drivel like the Bourne films, replete with the conventional anti-American cliches you expect from Tinseltown liberals. This leaks over to Mossad-Israeli films as well, the dimwitted Munich being an example. Spielberg is not exactly the guy for high-brow political thought and was manipulated by his screenwriter the tedious leftist Tony Kushner.
