Sam Husseini talks about the new film, “Official Secrets”, which tells the story of Katharine Gun, a British intelligence analyst who leaked information about the false case for war in Iraq to the press in 2003. Scott and Husseini also talk about Joe Biden’s record on opposing the war—at the time he was perfectly willing to go along with the war, but now he has to pretend he’s been an opponent all along.
Discussed on the show:
- “Film ‘Official Secrets’ is the Tip of a Mammoth Iceberg” (Consortium News)
- “Official Secrets (2019)” (IMDb)
- Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You
