Confronting Iraq: Conflict and Hope

Overview

Filmmaker Roger Aronoff sifts through the facts in a cinematic attempt to discern whether the War in Iraq was a unilateral move by the U.S. driven by greed and politics, or a necessary but unfortunate component of the larger and more expansive battle against radical Islam.

Overview

Filmmaker Roger Aronoff sifts through the facts in a cinematic attempt to discern whether the War in Iraq was a unilateral move by the U.S. driven by greed and politics, or a necessary but unfortunate component of the larger and more expansive battle against radical Islam. In the aftermath of the first Gulf War, some speculate that Saddam Hussein, long rumored to be actively seeking out weapons of mass destruction, actually cast aside his explosive ambitions. Others, however, persisted in claiming that Hussein's regime actually shared close ties with Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda.

From the Clinton administration to the Bush administration to the media, the critics, and the Leftist opposition, Aronoff leaves no stone unturned in his quest to offer valuable insight into a devastating war that could ultimately affect people of all religions, and on all continents.
