The War on Iraq, filmmaker Robert Greenwald chronicles the Bush Administration's determined quest to invade Iraq following the events of September 11, 2001.


The film deconstructs the administration's case for war through interviews with,

  • U.S intelligence and defense officials

  • foreign service experts

  • U.N. weapons inspectors - including a former CIA director

  • a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia

  • President Bush's Secretary of the Army

Their analyses and conclusions are sobering, and often disturbing, regardless of one's political affiliations.


This controversial and arresting film takes you behind the walls of government, as CIA, Pentagon and foreign service experts speak out, many for the first time, detailing the lies, misstatements and exaggerations that served as the reasons to fight a "pre-emptive" war that wasn't necessary.


This documentary offers an in-depth look at the unsettling distortion of intelligence and the "spin and hype" presented to the American people, the Congress and the press.


Fighting wars to bring about regime change is in breach of international law.


Yet, throughout the fall of 2002, and into the weeks preceding the war in Iraq, the Bush administration systematically distorted intelligence evidence and misled the public in order to turn opinion favor of "regime change" in Iraq.

The film will present interviews with more than 20 experts, all of whom have informed opinions about the reasons we were given for war and the evidence presented to support those reasons. Some supported the war itself but are deeply concerned about the way information was misused. All believe it is their duty to speak up.


Among those interviewed are:

  • former Ambassador Joe Wilson

  • weapons inspectors Scott Ritter and David Albright

  • anti-terrorism expert Rand Beers

  • former CIA analyst Ray McGovern

  • former CIA operative Robert Baer

  • Washington editor of The Nation, David Corn
