Iraq, a veritable imposture

Synopsis

Saddam Hussein’s arsenal of  “weapons of mass destruction” was George W. Bush’s main justification for waging war against Irak in 2003. After the invasion of the country, American leaders recognised that they had been mistaken, and that the Baghdad tyrant did not possess such a capability. Bush claimed it was an error and defended his good faith, denouncing the negligence of his secret services. But the brutal truth lay elsewhere. The war in Iraq was based on lies.
