In this documentary feature, filmmaker Robert Greenwald chronicles the Bush Administration's case to invade Iraq following the events of Sept. 11, 2001. The film examines the administration's argument for war through interviews with U.S intelligence and defense officials, foreign service experts and U.N. weapons inspectors -- including a former CIA director, a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia and even President Bush's Secretary of the Army.

This film is an extended version of Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War (2004), a 56-minute video documentary that became a grassroots hit in 2003. Because of its popularity, producer/director Robert Greenwald expanded and updated the film for the 2004 Cannes Film Festival and it was subsequently picked up for theatrical distribution by Cinema Libre Studio.

I expected this to be a scathing analysis of the decision to invade Iraq, and it was. It made an even stronger case than I expected against the decision. And it represents a service to the future by its assembly of archival footage of administration officials saying things that they undoubtedly will hope that the world will forget they said, given that they were proved wrong.
But the documentary was a surprise by building the case against the administration from interviews with a large number of mostly recently retired professionals from intelligence agencies, military, State Department, and so on, people who often had decades of experience with the issues at hand. Many of them were conservative and would differ with me on many issues, but their integrity put them on the same side of this issue, and their intelligence and concern for the country was heartwarming. This is a movie I wish people overseas would see as much as my fellow Americans, as it shows two sides of this country in a way I haven't really seen before.
