    Here are a couple of links for anyone who is interested in the real story of Paul Rusesabagina (character that Don Cheadle played in this movie). If you don't see the movie, you should check out this man's story. For those of you who would like to see his picture, check out the second link.

    “Paul Rusesabagina was never the most idealistic man. As manager of the Belgian-owned Mille Collines, a luxury hotel in Kigali, the Rwandan capital, he knew when to slip a bottle of Scotch to corrupt colonels to keep them in his pocket. Those street smarts became his salvation when Rwanda plummeted into genocide ten years ago in an event that transformed the genial businessman into an unlikely hero.”
