New York, Mar 01 (ANI): Actor Matt Damon, who campaigned for US President Barack Obama during elections, feels let down by the leader’s health care plans and troop build up in Afghanistan.

The ‘Bourne Identity’ actor believes that Obama has compromised too much.

“Politics is compromise. I’m disappointed in the health care plan and in the troop buildup in Afghanistan,” the New York Daily News quoted him as saying.

He added: “Everyone feels a little let down because, on some level, people expected all their problems to go away. But real change comes from everyday people. You can’t wait for a leader.”

However, Damon thinks Obama deserves more time.

Also, the actor spoke about his new film, Iraq war thriller, ‘Green Zone.’

He said: “the people who worked on ‘Green Zone’ come from all across the political spectrum.”

Damon plays the character of Roy Miller, based on real-life Army chief warrant officer Richard (Monty) Gonzales, whose Mobile Exploitation Team was charged with finding the WMDs during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

He said: “Monty was a Republican - he’d voted for Bush. He went to Iraq with the absolute conviction he was going to find the WMDs.” (ANI)
