About this item
This controversial and arresting film offers an in-depth look at the actual arguments, speeches and spin given by President Bush and his senior advisors before, during and after the Iraq invasion. Watch as they rely on rhetoric in lieu of hard evidence to justify a war. Listen to their justifications change to accomodate certain inconvenient and very relevant facts (such as the continued ability to find Iraqi weapons of mass destruction). Go behind the walls of government, as CIA, Pentagon, and foreign service experts speak out, many for the first time, detailing the lies, misstatements, and exxagerations that served as the reasons to fight a "preemptive" war that wasn't necessary. Contains compelling footage of BUsh, Rice, Cheney, Powell, and others painting a very clear picture of the distorted intelligence and "spin and hype" presented to Congress, the United Nations, and the American people. Those interviewed include former Ambassador Joe Wilson, weapons inspectors Scott Ritter and David Albright, former Director of CIA Stansfield Turner, former Asst. Secretary of Defense Philip Coyle, anti-terrorism expert Rand Beers, former CIA analysts Ray McGovern and Mel Goodman, former CIA operative Robert Baer, and Washington editor of The Nation, David Corn. Even those who supported the war should be deeply concerned about the way information was misused - the time has come for the truth to be heard.
