Iraq War Lies Exposed by ‘Official Secrets’ Heroine Influenced by Author | Accuracy.Org

The movie “Official Secrets” has just opened nationally.

The film is a remarkably accurate Hollywood account of how British spy Katharine Gun (played by Keira Knightley) attempted to stop the invasion of Iraq by exposing a top secret NSA document proving the U.S. and British governments were spying on other UN members to bully and blackmail their way to a UN authorization for war.

Gun recently revealed that she was inspired to expose the Jan. 31, 2003 NSA document in part by reading a book co-authored by Norman Solomon about the then-impending invasion.

After the British Observer published the NSA document on March 1, 2003, reporting of the disclosure was big news around the world — but not in the U.S.
