"Hubris" (Full Film) Iraq War Documentary - Rachel Maddow
I do not own this, all rights reserved to NBC Universal. Also, Rachel always asks for people to put her show on YouTube, so I believe I have permission to post this.
This is going to likely be a rather controversial documentary about the War in Iraq, and what is described as the false pretenses that caused our nation to enter our most unpopular war since Vietnam.

After watching films like this and Academy Award nominee "No End in Sight" I can't help but be discouraged by the lack of leadership in a time of national and global crisis.

Close examination of the events leading up to the Iraq War 2003 and detailed analysis of the decision making process by Professor Vernon Bogdanor FBA CBE http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and... Britain and the United States had long been fearful that Saddam Hussein, the dictator of Iraq, was developing weapons of mass destruction in breach of the armistice agreement which had ended the first Gulf war in 1991. After the terrorist attack on the United States on 11 September 2001, President Bush determined on regime change, a policy first announced by his predecessor, President Clinton. Britain’s Labour government, led by Prime Minister, Tony Blair, as well as the Conservative opposition, supported the United States. There was, however, considerable opposition to the war, opposition which appeared justified when no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq.
