Even the New York Times makes a mistake every now and again.  "Among the new films, “Valley of Elah” is sure to be one of the most closely examined, thanks to Mr. Haggis’s credentials — he shared an Oscar for writing “Million Dollar Baby” and was nominated for another as co-writer of “Letters From Iwo Jima” — and because of his opposition to United States policy in Iraq . . ." from Michael Cieply's column today about the number of soon-to-be released Iraq war films.  Haggis, of course, shared an Oscar with Robert Moresco for "Crash."  He was nominated for writing credits on "Million Dollar Baby" and "Letters from Iwo Jima." 

The article is certainly worth a read.
