No End in Sight

Synopsis: Chronological look at the fiasco in Iraq, especially decisions made in the spring of 2003 - and the backgrounds of those making decisions - immediately following the overthrow of Saddam: no occupation plan, an inadequate team to run the country, insufficient troops to keep order, and three edicts from the White House announced by Bremmer when he took over: no provisional Iraqi government, de-Ba'athification, and disbanding the Iraqi armed services. The film has chapters (from History to Consequences), and the talking heads are reporters, academics, soldiers, military brass, and former Bush-administration officials, including several who were in Baghdad in 2003.

in search of Al Qaeda

and of Osama Bin Laden.

But before the war of Afghanistan,

including members of Al Qaeda.

We watch the participation

of Iraq in terrorist activities.

What I want to highlight today...

it is the connection potentially

much more sinister between Iraq...

and the terrorist network of Al Qaeda.

We do not want that of smoke of gun

pass to atomic cloud.


Iraq is full of vagrants...

they will put them in ships...

they will give them chemical biological weapon...

and they will order them flying

from the ships...

to attack the east coast of the USA.

It is a fantastic world.

I do not know what these people were smoking...

but it had to be of good quality.


of George W. Bush...

Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz...

they directed the administration

towards the war of Iraq.

Condolezza Rice accompanied them.

Colin Powell and Richard Armitage...

the only tall officials

with experience in combat...

they expressed his worries, but

they supported to the administration in public.


The advisers of Bush

they were treating with Saddam Hussein...
