The Spies Who Fooled The World Iraq War Documentary BBC

Published on Sep 15, 2013 by THEDOC911

On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the Iraq War, Panorama reveals how key aspects of the secret intelligence used by Downing Street and the White House to justify the invasion were based on fabrication, wishful thinking and lies. Peter Taylor tracks down some of those responsible and reports on the remarkable story of how, in the months before the war, two highly-placed sources – close to Saddam Hussein – talked secretly to the CIA and MI6. Their intelligence said Iraq did not have an active WMD programme – but it was simply dismissed.

  1. I would like to meet this guy and beat the living shit out of him for what he said at 2:20 when he says he lied and laughs about it. Wars are all a game of money and power to these bastards.

    1. Yep. You and me both. That bastard has the same sick DeNiro smirk and the same sick mafia smirk that you just want to beat the shit out of every time you see it.

  2. I don’t think many were fooled by those lies. It’s just that those of us against the war couldn’t stop it while those who were pro-war and have since seen what a mess it has led to claim they believed the lies. No they didn’t. They just wanted the war. The lies were simply their spurious justification for it, and still is.

    1. To me all wars are started with lies its the way is is done.

      “By deception we shall do war”

      It will be the same for WWIII we never learn!
