Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War (VIDEO)
I don't know if this has been posted before, but here's a very good documetary from Robert Greenwald.
It covers the run-up to the war in 2003 and has a lot of interviews with central people in the intel community and politics.

Ray McGovern, Milton Bearden, Robert Baer and others from CIA, Hans Blix and several other weapons inspectors, Joe Wilson, politicians, journalists and many, many other.

Uncovered: The Whole Truth
About the Iraq War


The fraud that led to war.
http://www.brasscheck.com/videos/iraq/iraqwar12.html

This movie should be emailed to everyone still believing that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. It exposes the big lie; the lack of credible threat that Iraq posed versus the build up of the myth of their weapons arsenal, and the subsequent urgency to start a war. It has many news clips by Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rice and Powell prior to the invasion, and also their statements afterwards, as the illusory WMD failed to materialize. All in all, this isn't the worst 56 minutes and 8 seconds you'd spend on informing yourself ;-)

1. it's an excellent movie-- the irony is that it has been around...
...from the very beginning, and so few folks know about it or have seen it.

It outlines all the lies. More people need to see this.

2. Excellent piece.
If it hadn't been so serious, it would have been comical to listen to these bald-faced lies, after knowing what we know, at this point in time. Especially George. He has fibbing down to an art.

4. Strange how their demeanor changed, huh?
It was all WMD in 2002, and in 2004 you could hear a needle fall.

5. I watched it a few months ago...
It reminded me how long it took for corporate media to catch up and report the info provided.
Excellent documentary.

6. It's a good movie
No action, but you get the picture behind the news.
