Green Zone

Synopsis: Following the American invasion of Iraq in 2003 Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller and his men are charged with finding the so-called weapons of mass destruction, whose existence justified American involvement, according to the Pentagon and their man in Baghdad, Poundstone. Veteran CIA operative Marty tells Miller that there are no weapons, it is a deception to allow the Americans to take over the country and install a puppet leader. Also suspicious of Poundstone is Wall Street Journal reporter Lawrie Dayne, who lets slip to Miller that Poundstone told her he had secret talks in Jordan with an important Iraqi, code-named Magellan, who told him about the weapons, though it now seems likely Magellan's true information was to the contrary. So begins a hunt for the truth. Who's playing whom?

You're the one assigned by management,

Cannot you access your own source?

Do not worry, we're interrogating,

That takes time, that's first.

For the love of God, so far you

I have given all we have the type,

What do you want?

Neither want to hear from

you, I want to hear from him.

I'll see what I can do.

Welcome home, sir.

How does it feel to return?

You thought I'd see this day?

I am happy to return...

I call upon all Arabs to hold

liberation from tyranny...

Where is the colonel?

I think he's behind.

- See you later.

- If I'll see you there.


Nice to see you.

What happened to the information?

We do not get us far in that.

We need to talk, there was

nothing there, the place was empty.

Be careful, you

to have much trouble.

What do you mean?

We claim not to move

faster, now they blame us.

Garbage... information was not good.

Let's be realistic, okay?

not want to hear that in Washington,

all they want is

something to put on CNN.

Lord, we must talk about

this information was useless.

Now is not the time.

Room... standing.

Sit down, gentlemen.

We are here this morning to give the

General progress reports

and our plans for

the next 48 hours,

for that I give the word to the captain.

Welcome, sir...

Today we will inform you of the operation

will take place in the Baghdad area...

during the next 24 hours.

We continue with the main objectives

priority and that all Americans...

are eagerly awaiting the

news that we find these weapons.

We have a very detailed plan,

in coordination with the

allies... we have a good plan

top network involving

of reports of the U.S. and the UK,

so they are prepared to cover

all aspects of good news.


I have a couple of questions about

information tomorrow...

Are we sure this is accurate?
