“Such fatalism is a deadly adversary,” Matt Damon responds. Whoopi Goldberg, Morgan Freeman and a host of other far-left actors appear in the video, which was produced by Global Zero, a Washington, D.C.-based grassroots organization whose mission is “to eliminate all nuclear weapons by 2030.” “Global Zero will always have a partner in me and my administration,” Obama once declared.
