It is often said that those of us who do not remember history are forever condemned to repeat it. Could a film that deftly explains how the United States was intentionally lied into an entirely unnecessary, deadly, and incredibly expensive war, help prevent our nation from ever making the same disastrous mistake again?
Rachel Maddow’s jaw-dropping documentary, Hubris: Selling the Iraq War, clearly illuminates the intricate web of deceit and fictional weapons of mass destruction that was constructed by Bush and his cronies to justify invading Iraq a decade ago. This is a must see film, which will air again on MSNBC this Friday night, March 22nd.
When the hugely successful Hubris initially premiered last month, it broke the network’s ratings records. This compelling movie is already dramatically reshaping how our nation now understands our political history and our occupation of Iraq, as well as some of the treasonous war crimes and horrific abuses that were perpetrated by members of the Bush Administration.
Hopefully Maddow’s excellent and informative documentary will help prevent our country from ever again waging another brutal war based upon nothing but deceit and subterfuge.
