VIDEO: The War On Terror – Truth & Lies

‘Breaking The Silence: Truth And Lies In The War On Terror’ (2003) was screened six months after the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and two years after the invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. The film dissects the truth and lies behind the ‘War on Terror’, investigating the discrepancies between American and British justification for ‘war’ and the facts on the ground in Afghanistan and Washington DC.

The film opens with a harrowing series of photographs showing the carnage inflicted on Iraqis by the United States and British military forces in 2003. In the background, President George W Bush declares America “will bring to the Iraq people food, medicine, supplies and freedom… we have shown Freedom’s power and in this great conflict we will see Freedom’s victory” while British Prime Minister Tony Blair claims the war in Iraq is a “fight for freedom” and “a fight for justice”.
