The Iraq War

A few days after 9/11 Iraq’s intelligence service received a secret message from a trusted emissary stating that America wanted to commit to the war on terror against Al-Qaeda. The deputy prime minster Tariq Aziz gave the order to tell America that Iraq would help fight Al-Qaeda. Saddam’s answer was quite different as he felt that America wasn’t the only country to suffer from terrorism and that the sanctions the UN apply to his country was a form of terror, killing far more in Iraq than died in 9/11.

This film tells the inside story of a decade of war in Iraq, from the road to invasion to the birth of an uncertain democracy and the attempts to put an end to the killing that has claimed over 100,000 lives.
