The UN's former Chief Weapons Inspector has made his own film, exposing what he alleges is the truth. This documentary features interviews with Rolf Ekeus, Tariq Aziz, Amer Rashid, Amer al-S'adi, Scott Ritter and Dr Daniel Pipes.
Ex weapons inspector Scott Ritter covers the history of the UNSCOM through the 1990s and its final dissolution in 1998. He maintains it was manipulated by the US for it's own political ends which including provoking Iraq into confrontation. The film also lays bare the deceptions and concealment that characterises Iraqi behaviour over its arsenal of WMD. Assembled over almost a decade and completed in 2001, In Shifting Sands is remarkably timely - but in the wake of the latest reports from the inspection team that succeeded UNSCOM, it offers much food for thought and few easy answers.
