No End in Sight is a new documentary directed by Charles Ferguson, a former political scientist and scholar at Brooklyn Institution who turned the documentary film making to tell the story about what went wrong in the early days of the American war in Iraq.

 

Now this movie is in some ways very wide ranging, but it's also very focused. The basic story it has to tell is about what happened right after the invasion in the months, in the spring and early summer of 2003, when according to the people, interviewed in this film, decisions were made that cast the die for what was gonna happen later.

 

The plan was essentially, we’ll stay for 3 or 4 months, we will install a government made up of exiles and led by Augment Chelarby, and then in August to September of 2003, we will begin a drastic reduction of troops.

 

Lawrence Di Rita addressed us in one forum and said by the end of August of 2003, we will have all but 25 to 30 thousand troops out of Iraq. I heard him say that in a room full of people. And I turned to my colleagues and I said, "This guy doesn't know what he's talking about. It's physically impossible."

 

He talks to military personnel, to diplomats, to journalists and administrators and the story that emerges is a devastating picture of arrogance and incompetence.

 

Again, these are not anti-war activists or leftists.  These are people who went into Iraq to implement the Bush administration’s policies to try to rebuild the country after the fall of Saddam Hussein, and found themselves ignored, undermined and thwarted by the policies that were coming from Washington.

 

In some ways No End in Sight has a very simple question, one that’s already beginning to be asked in political circles, in journalism, on talk shows, the question, "Who lost Iraq?" "Who is responsible for the fact that this war has gone on for 4 years, more than 4 years with so much violence?" And the movie supplies very specific answers. It names Names. It says Paul Walfolest, Donald Blumsfield, Eld Paul Blammer, Dick Chainie, George Bush. Perhaps not surprisingly all of these people declined Charles Ferguson’s offer to be interviewed for this movie. One can only help that one of these days they'll get around to watch it.

 

As CIA laid out / several scenarios, it said, "Life could be lousy; life could be okay; life could be better."

 

The president hasn't read it, not even the one-page summary over which we work so hard to reduce these findings to a single readable page.

 

President did not read even the executive summary? Correct!
