In this documentary feature, filmmaker Robert Greenwald chronicles the Bush Administration's determination to invade Iraq following the events of September 11th, 2001.
The film examines the administration's argument for war through interviews with U.S intelligence and defense officials, informers, foreign service experts and U.N. weapons inspectors - including a former CIA director, a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia and even President Bush's Secretary of the Army.
Their analyses and conclusions are sobering and often disturbing.
It's the story of how truth became the first American casualty of war and how the citizens of the US were intentionally and illegally conned into the war by a group of powerful neo-conservatives who were looking for an excuse to invade Iraq long before the September 11th attacks.
"A thorough indictment of the Bush administration's focus on Iraq."
"If you've ever wondered why we got into the Iraq war and what still faces us there, this is the film that can explain it to you."
