The George W. Bush administration intentionally deceived the American people in order to justify the Iraq War. Using a wealth of different sources, Robert Greenwald's 2004 film investigates the motives and pretexts of the administration of former President George W. Bush for going to war in Iraq after 9/11.
3:33 Just one day after the September eleventh attacks, the Bush administration began its plans for the invasion of Iraq, claiming the country had possession of nuclear weapons; despite a complete lack of evidence.
7:11 The Bush Administration rounded up people who could create talking points for the invasion of Iraq. Those who raised questions against them were simply told to "sit down and shut up"
11:50 The Bush Administration edited and censored the official National Intelligence Estimate, modifying the meanings of revealing facts that would damage their facade.
14:15 Despite the claims that the war in Iraq was part of the war on terror, there are no real connections between Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. In fact, they were even adversaries
17:42 The CIA's so called defector, Ahmed Chalabi was a political exile from his own country. For Ahmed, the war was simply a way back into Iraq
23:08 At the 2003 state of the union speech, Bush distorted and lied left and right, breaking national law.
29:10 Bush's claims of Hussein's uranium deal with Africa were not only untrue, but vengeful - and very nearly deadly - actions were taken against those who spoke out.
36:06 In Secretary of State Powell's Address to The United States we were shown photos of so called "Chemical Bunkers" that Hussein was apparently using to produce biological weapons, and once again: there was no evidence to support these claims.
45:23 Essentially all information regarding weapons of mass destruction came from one sole source, and that source was the pentagon
53:05 Taking a look back in time, we begin to see suspicious conflictions between what was said then, and before the war.
56:25 The United States spends billions on their search for nothing, while refusing to release an informed cost estimate.
59:12 David Kay chronicles his extensive study and search for evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and how he found nothing but lies.
