Trailer for War of Lies.

Is Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi simply a proud Iraqi who helped rid the world of Saddam Hussein, or a brilliant con artist whose story about chemical weapons led the US to invade Iraq? Filmmaker Matthias Bittner sits down with the shadowy man himself in this confessional-cum-controversial thriller. Escaping his native Iraq in 1999 to Germany, Janabi claimed to have been a chemical engineer working for the Iraqi military industrial complex when—according to Janabi—the German secret service sealed his fate. Stating that they too wanted to depose Hussein, Janabi eagerly gave details in exchange for asylum. But after 9/11, his questionable file—ironically codenamed “Curveball”—was passed on to the Americans, and to Janabi’s own alleged disbelief, his “information” greenlit Iraq’s invasion. But who was really using who? Could one desperate man’s story have really snowed two secret service agencies and snowballed into the largest military debacle of the 21st century? Be shocked and awed by this riveting account of mass destruction misinformation.
