THE LIES THAT LED TO WAR

Posted on Friday, March 09 at 09:04 by jensonj
In Act of Faith which aired that same year, the fifth estate examined how George Bush and Tony Blair struck a deal that would lead to the invasion of Iraq. It was a deal struck while UN diplomats worked to avert conflict in the weeks and months leading up to March 19, 2003. In the widely acclaimed Conspiracy Theories and the Unauthorized Biography of Dick Cheney, which aired in 2003 and 2004 respectively, we looked at intelligence failures leading up to 9/11, Dick Cheney's power within the White House and his Halliburton connections, as well as the links between the Bush family, the Saudi Royal family and the Bin Ladens. Selling the war in Iraq In 2005's Sticks and Stones, we turned our attention to the American media and how they covered the ongoing war in Iraq, public dissent, as well as the increasingly hostile tone between left and right in American discourse. Now, The Lies That Led To War provides context to the events of the previous six years, showing how political, diplomatic, media spin which sometimes crossed the line into outright lies - have been used by the those in power to further their own agendas. http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/lies/
