|The most controversial documentary since Bowling for Columbine!
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.
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.
Editor's NoteDirector Robert Greenwald uses news coverage and other footage to compile a portrait of the government under President George W. Bush as it prepares for and justifies the war in Iraq. Highlighting the inconsistencies evident in the statements made by politicians and spokespeople in support of the war, such as the overstatement of Iraq's program for weapons of mass destruction, Greenwald works to illustrate the ulterior motives that may have provided momentum to the war effort. Greenwald subsequently made UNCOVERED: THE WAR ON IRAQ, which is a feature-length documentary that was released in theaters.
