How did this not win an award?

Today, on the snowy eve of the Academy Awards, I caught the Jeffrey Ross documentary, Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie, which is based on his weeklong USO tour of Iraq back in 2003.

It's a fascinating, presumably uncensored, voyage into the midst of the troops deployed in Baghdad, Tikrit, and other Iraqi cities. I have no idea why this fine film didn't get more play, bigger press, and even an award nomination or two. See it, it's on cable now.
