What level of threat was Saddam Hussein’s regime postin to the U.S. compared to the level of threat the U.S. Government has been posing to Iraq after twelve years of embargo. bombing raids and now war? Where have the billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars gone that were spent on both the 1991 Gulf War and the present war and who will win the contracts to rebuild Iraq? What kind of oil reserves does Iraq have and how does this factor into the equation? Why do the U.S. public and the rest of the world see such different media coverage of both wars to the point of drawing opposite conclusions as to motives and end results? “Hidden Wars of Desert Storm” helps answer these questions by providing an easy-to-understand background on the relationship between Washington and Baghdad as well as on the origins, developement and aftermath of the 1991 Gulf War. Featuring such key-players as then Desert Storm Commander Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf. UNSCOM team-leader Scott Ritter and UN Iraq program director Denis Halliday, this documentary has been broadcast all over the world but has little if any exposure in the mainstream U.S. media. Warning: Contains scenes of violence.
