No End In Sight Set For You Tube Launch

No End In Sight Poster-1

The people responsible for the documentary No End In Sight are letting the world see it for free starting Sept 1, 2008. We get the following news release thanks to our friends at the movieweb:

Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature and winner of the Documentary Special Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, the first film of its kind to examine the American policies that sent Iraq spiraling into a civil war, will also be the first widely released feature film to screen in its entirety on YouTube starting on September 1 and continuing through the 2008 presidential election on Tuesday, November 4. The film will be featured on its own YouTube channel ( and available to anyone with a computer and high-speed internet connection, as well as via the YouTube service on broadband-connected TiVo Series3 or TiVo HD DVRs, which enables subscribers to watch the myriad content of YouTube on their televisions. No End in Sight is being made available free to the public to reveal the facts about the Bush Administration’s invasion and occupation of Iraq to voters concerned with the issues of national security and the adverse economic impact of the war when making decisions in this crucial election.

No End in Sight is a jaw-dropping, insider’s tale of the ignorance, incompetence and blind ambition that ensnared the U.S. in a war without a post-invasion plan. In the film, high ranking officials tasked with rebuilding Iraq, such as former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, Ambassador Barbara Bodine, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who served as Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell, and General Jay Garner, who was in charge of the occupation in early 2003, recount principal errors in U.S. policy which opened the door to the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today. From insufficient troop numbers to secure the country to alienating the Iraqi people, No End in Sight details how a swift military victory descended into a quagmire.

I haven’ t seem this film, but will certainly be watching it with al of you the first of September. I love when documentary filmmakers release their stuff for free online. Over the past few months I have seen The Century Of The Self, Manufacturing Consent and The Corporation all on google video.

All of us will be able to watch this film together, for free, and we have a unique opportunity to discuss it from all corners of the globe. I love the internet.

  1. Hey Godfather,

    As someone who has been there and witnessed the violence firsthand I wouldn’t exactly put up the blanket statement that all Iraqi’s are united in fighting their “foreign enemy” there was and continues to be a lot of suni vs. shia while many times American forces were not targeted at all. Believe what you want to and you will find the facts to back it up.

  2. It’s a great movie.
    It leaves you kind of confused with only one question in your head:
    How could they fuck up things so horribly dealing with Iraq?
    There is probably an argument to be made from the other point of view, but this film makes a pretty convincing argument. Very worth watching indeed.

  3. Iraq is not in a civil war… WTF? Civil war would mean that people within the boundary are fighting for control of the same territory. Iraq is fighting occupation against a foreign enemy, holding it hostage. Don’t confuse the two. America is the bully and is ILLEGALLY holding Iraq against its own will, in a fake war that has been hatched to create the illusion of an enemy.

  4. Endgame is also free to watch same with Loose Change. Both those documentaries are way more compelling than this one.
    But I find so many ppl can’t handle the truth…. So they label it “Conspiracy”.

    Vote for the black guy or the white guy it hardly matters.
    This is a 2 party dictatorship and if you don’t know it yet your incredibly grounded in lies.

    Everything went perfectly in Iraq, just because it looked like a botched war it wasn’t. The invaison and subsequent occpation is running right on sched.
