Web of Deceit: The War in Iraq
Phillipe Sands QC
After WW2, Western democracies united in trying to create a new world order protecting human rights, preventing wars and promoting free trade. Philippe Sands in Lawless Worldhas shown how the US –and the UK- have repeatedly broken those rules. In Web of Deceit Barry Lando demonstrates the cynicism and greed driving foreign intervention in Iraq since it was founded and beyond the reign of Saddam: an excellent illustration of Philippe Sands’ thesis. Amongst other things, they discussed what was omitted from Saddam’s trial and the key role of his foreign co-conspirators.
