Battle in Najaf: Is US-Iraqi Claim of Gunfight with Messianic Cult Cover-up for a Massacre?

There are new doubts about the US and Iraqi claim that the hundreds of people killed in a battle in Najaf over the weekend were members of a messianic cult. Journalist Patrick Cockburn of the London Independent reports the official story might actually be a cover-up for a massacre.

And many more to come. I found this film about the secret war in Iraq, which outlines the problems that the truth about civilian life and how difficult it is to get an accurate picture of the situation in Iraq. When it was filmed there were some 90 journalists who had been killed. The brave ones who stayed were afraid and gradually had to hide in the green zone and then get out of the country.

49 minutes and it is graphic. There are parts that have subtitles, so you have to sit and watch it to get the impact of how little we know and get about information from Iraq, that is reliable!

Iraq: The Hidden War

Iraq: The Hidden Story shows the footage used by TV news broadcasts, and compares it with the devastatingly powerful uncensored footage of the aftermath of the carnage that is becoming a part of the fabric of life in Iraq.

Prod/ Dir: Christian Trumble; Exec Prod: Stephen Phelps; Prod Co: Zenith Entertainment Ltd - 2006

Images of Iraq dominate our TV news bulletins every night but in this film, Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow, questions whether these reports are sugar-coating the bloody reality of war under the US-led occupation

- Warning -

This video contains images that should only be viewed by a mature audience
