Uncovered: The quest to invade IraqTue Mar 28, 2006 00:01
Uncovered: The War on Iraq chronicles the Bush Administration's determined quest to invade Iraq following the events of September 11, 2001.
The film deconstructs the administration's case for war through interviews with U.S intelligence and defense officials, foreign service experts, and U.N. weapons inspectors – including a former CIA director, a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia and even President's Bush's Secretary of the Army. Their analyses and conclusions are sobering, and often disturbing, regardless of one's political affiliations. Produced and Directed by Robert Greenwald.

Help me survive The Colbert Report this Thursday

Dear activists, colleagues and friends,
With your support, we had no trouble taking on Bush, and friends in "Uncovered," Bill O'Reilly in "Outfoxed" or Lee Scott and company in "Wal-Mart." Exposing Tom DeLay and other corrupt politicians and corporations (in our upcoming "The Big Buy") doesn't scare us. But a formidable challenge is in the wings, one that has all of us at Brave New Films very nervous...
Yes, I've been invited to be a guest on Comedy Central's brilliant and scathingly funny "The Colbert Report" next Thursday, March 30th 11:30pm.
My first instinct was to run and hide. (Has anyone emerged from that show with their dignity intact? Could I even begin to imagine a more daunting adversary than Stephen Colbert?) But "The Colbert Report" is my 13-year-old son's favorite show, and I didn't want to seem cowardly in his eyes. Nor did I want to seem hypocritical by following in the footsteps of Billy O'Reilly, who's refused our many requests to debate us on the "fair and balanced" lie of Fox News.
So I agreed to appear. And now I need your help!
I need you to prep me, grill me, educate and advise me. Undertake a mission of mercy to save me! What questions will Stephen ask, and how should I reply? What questions should I turn back on Stephen? How can I make the political points we want his audience to hear, without totally embarrassing all of you Brave New Films supporters?
Stephen has his team of researchers and producers, but I have you -- our loyal activists and savvy media consumers whose collective experience and intelligence I have no doubt will help me give the "Colbert Report" team a run for their money.
Post your advice on my blog, and the BNF team will pick the winning submission, whose author will get a free copy of "The Big Buy" DVD AND an advance copy of our top secret, blow the lid off things film that is coming in the fall.
And after my triumph (or humiliation!) on March 30th, check back on the blog and give us your analysis. Those so inclined can take the episode and re-edit it, replacing me with yourself and your better answers.
Take a minute NOW to send off some advice for me... I'm counting on you!
-- Robert Greenwald

"IMPOSSIBLE TO DISMISS."
In his documentary feature, UNCOVERED: The War on Iraq, filmmaker Robert Greenwald chronicles the Bush Administration's determined quest to invade Iraq following the events of September 11, 2001. The film deconstructs the administration's case for war through interviews with U.S intelligence and defense officials, foreign service experts, and U.N. weapons inspectors -- including a former CIA director, a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia and even President Bush's Secretary of the Army. Their analyses and conclusions are sobering, and often disturbing, regardless of one's political affiliations.
Since this film was first released in November 2003 via thousands of house parties organized by MoveOn.org, the issues addressed have become well known, and the arguments made by the experts in the film have been proven. Most recently, by the Downing Street Memos.
This is an important film documenting exactly how the Bush administration hoodwinked the American people into supporting an unnecessary war. A war that has claimed tens of thousands of lives, and continues today.
Read why the director, Robert Greenwald, decided to make this film. See the timeline of the Bush Administration's justification for war, images and excerpts from the film, or the complete transcript (pdf).
