Deception by whom and for what purpose?
21 November 2005 | by (Madison, Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

This DVD went to great lengths to convince viewers there was deception from many sources to convince the American congress and public of the need to invade Iraq.

Numerous, believable persons who held office in places to give them credibility gave testimony that indicated a deception or distortion on the truth had occurred.

And yet, no motive for the deception was ever hinted at. I find it notable that VP Cheney is depicted as the person who insisted it was important to send Joseph Wilson to Nigeria. There, he was to investigate the possibility of Iraq attempting to purchase yellow cake uranium. When Joseph Wilson came back and reported he did not find any credible evidence regarding the suspected sale he was verbally attacked and his wife was exposed as a CIA operative. This suggests that Mr. Cheney or someone he answers to wanted the report to verify the attempted purchase. It has been suggested by sources other than this movie that VP Cheney exerted much pressure on President Bush to invade Iraq. These two bits of info reflect suspiciously on him.

Again, the DVD offered speculation the deception was deliberate, but never served up a motive nor a hint at who would benefit from all this wizardry. It comes across as more a bit of anti-Bush rhetoric than as a fact finding mission, and on that point it falls short of my expectations based on the title.

I was totally opposed to the US going into Iraq without UN backing but now that our men and women are there, it is important we give THEM our support and find a sensible way to get them home without leaving a situation worse than what existed before we invaded.

This DVD could be very demoralizing to the troops presently serving in the military. I hope none of them see it.
