the film's people could have fact checked it
Huh? Why would they do that? The facts would get in the way of their trying to steal the White House for the most left-leaning member of the U.S. Senate.

During the mid-1990s, a Unocal subsidiary joined a consortium that proposed to build a natural gas pipeline from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan to Pakistan. Negotiations concerning this project proposal were never concluded with representatives of these governments and no construction ever began.
Unocal had signed an agreement with the government of Turkmenistan in October 1995 giving Unocal the right to buy natural gas from specific, certified and dedicated reserves in Turkmenistan, transport it to Pakistan, and market it. The gas project would encompass construction of a pipeline from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan to Pakistan and development of marketing outlets in Pakistan.
Unocal also had signed an agreement last year with Turkmenistan to develop an oil pipeline from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan to a crude oil export terminal and/or refineries in Pakistan on the Indian Ocean. This pipeline would transport crude oil from fields inside Turkmenistan and from the surrounding region.
I don't like the fat Morron at all, just keep eating and he will die pretty soon. But this one too... The story today is very different than in was in the past. If it is a lie, I don't see anything to cheer for...
