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?

It is strong, is good.

What is the source?

It is a human source...

is solid, 100%.

Is it the same source that we have

everywhere we have reviewed?

Chief, what if we do this?

Talk later, give me a list

of all the places I've gone...

and make sure you have the

correct information next time.

The problem is not that...

is that there is nothing there.

High head, let's continue.

Wait a second.

Listen to what

must tell the boss.

According sir, I'll give an example...

We all went to a place

last week...

We had many casualties

ensuring the place...

we went there and found to be

factory toilets...

I'm saying is that there is no agreement

in what is in these packages

and what we actually...

There is a problem with

intelligence, sir.

This is what is boss...

These packages

more... are good.

We are not interested in

Where do they get the information...

Is that clear?

Yes, sir...

Well, let's continue.

Sir, as I said, the information

received this morning...

is strong...

The next stop Al Mansour, Baghdad...

say it is an underground warehouse...

We have many reports of activity.

Tell all be vigilant.



- I will watch the team.

- Yes, yes...

Martin Brown, CIA...


If I know, was at the meeting.

- Are you going to the store in Baghdad?

- If...

You are wasting your time...

carry a biological team

two months ago, there is nothing there.

This is my card

is right, this makes no sense...

the Iraqis do not fight, no weapons...

since we came here

We have not found anything,

there is something wrong here.

You have to discover it is...

If you find any

thing... has my number.

I'll take some pictures of it.

Take this.

Be careful, you idiot.

Lieutenant, the chief spoke, come here.

We will need a couple of guys
