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.Written by

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.

Another poor attempt to destroy a triumph in humanity, and modern day politics and social policies. Perpetuating the belief that the government owes an explanation for everything that is done. Totally disregarding the positives that come from the Bush administration removing a tyrant from power.
Don't expect all the facts, 99% of the movie is based on these "high officials in the government" speculations. (Majority of which are not in any position of power anymore, and wouldn't have any facts surrounding the invasion)
All in all, it's another movie about how bad Bush is, and how much we're lied to. And never forget that biological weapons ARE weapons of mass destruction. This seems to be forgotten frequently throughout the "movie".
