Iraq: The Final Judgement

On the 6th of July, 2016, the long awaited Iraq Inquiry released its findings, it strongly criticised former prime minister Tony Blair and his government, stating that they led the country into war based on flawed intelligence that should have been challenged. At 2.6 million words the report also goes into detail on how Britain had joined the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 without having first exhausted all peaceful options.

In this film we see reporter Jane Corbin revisit Iraq after having been embedded with British troops when they invaded and when they pulled out after six long years of war. Corbin brings with her parents who lost their son to the war and meets up with the general who led these British troops into battle as they look back at what went wrong.
