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.

to his leadership, mister Presidente...

in this unincluded war

and stranger...

the first war of the XXIst century.

Good is not known, it did not understand itself well...

it to the people...

but I know with certain safety

that, with the time...

his contributions

they will be registered in the history.

NO END IN SIGH THANK YOU, the USA.

We condemn with hardness the criminal action

of the forces of the USA.

We are sorry about this catastrophe

to hands of the evil.

We demand the execution

of the unfaithful Wahabi

that receive support of the USA.

They have been arrested

and admitted his guilt

opposite to the presents.

We demand his execution.

On May 1, 2003,

the president George W. Bush...

declared a high place in the operations

said...

" In the war of Iraq, the USA.

and our Allied Forces have prevailed ".

Four years later, after 3.000 dead persons...

and 20.000 American injured men,

Iraq has disintegrated in the chaos.

Baghdad suffers from ten

to fifteen bombings a day...

ADVISER OF IRAQ IN THE OCCUPATION

... perhaps 50 deceased in act of service...

but I suspect

that about that does not speak to himself very much.

Probably, only I came to us

a third of what happens actually.

Million Iraqis

they have no drinking water...

treatment of residual waters

not even electricity from the invasion.

Baghdad, with six million inhabitants...

she has been submitted to a curfew

from March, 2006.

More than three million Iraqis

they have fled to the nearby countries.

of civil deaths it promotes 600.000.

Those who die are lucky...

IRAQI JOURNALIST IN the USA.

but those who live, are dead in life.

The west and the north of Iraq

it is controlled by the insurgents.

MANAGER IN BAGHDAD

The rest of Iraq

it is controlled by the militias.

Two Moslem principal groups,

the majority chita and the minority sun...

they are more and more conflicting.

They executed them for being sunes.

We were living together up to today.

It is an Iranian wave against us.

An Iranian wave.

We are Moslem. How is it possible?

They say that they are the Army of Mahdi.

Is this what this army does?

Look what it has obtained.

, that see his face.

From January, 2003 until January, 2005...

I was a president

of the National Council of Intelligence.

We write the first estimation

of rebellion in Iraq.

It was bad news.

It was presenting situations

bad, worse and the awful.

The president corrected it of guesswork

of press...

corrected it of insecurity

and opposition to the government.

What I gave to understand

the fact was that the president had not read it.

This is the history

of the invasion of Iraq for the USA.

In that many persons

they tried to save a nation.

On September 11, 2001 it was

a beautiful clear and clear day.

It was returning of the hairdressing salon of the pentagon...

THE DIRECTOR OF STRATEGIC POLITICS

for my office

a glance to the TV set...

.

SAFETY CHAMBER:

OF THE PENTAGON:

We do not hear to smash to the plane,

at least, I did not hear it.

Suddenly,

it was as if the Earth was opened.

I saw the fire-ball and, I must say...

that, on having seen her, I thought that

it would not go out hence lively.

The plane had smashed

under our office area.

The office of budget...

where 38 persons died,

it was just below...

and the new center of control of the marina

it was two apartments further down.

There were no survivors

in these two sections.

Osama Bin Laden...

because another terrorist did not occur to me...

that could have organized something like that.

think it immediately?

Immediately.
