U.S. actors portray negative U.S. images

Feb. 3, 2006 at 4:31 PM   |   Comments

ISTANBUL, Turkey, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Hollywood actors Gary Busey and Billy Zane starred in a brutal Turkish film portraying U.S. troops slaughtering Iraqi civilians.

The film, "Valley of the Wolves: Iraq," has U.S. soldiers crashing a wedding -- shooting the groom in the head and gunning down innocent guests as well as children in front of their parents, the New York Daily News reports.

Busey plays a Jewish-American doctor at Abu Ghraib prison who disembowels innocent Iraqis so their organs can be sold to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv while Zane plays a military officer who calls himself "a peacekeeper sent by God," the Daily News said.

A spokesman for Zane did not return the Daily News' call inquiring why he would take part in anti-American propaganda.

Busey's rep, however, told the News: "It was basically a payday for him."
