The speaker will be addressing how the US and to a lesser extent, the UK has 'shaped' intelligence to fit policy. He will be discussing how this policy of regime change led the Intelligence services to make up a case for war. Ritter will also be giving a first hand account of how the CIA manipulates and sabotages the works of UN departments to achieve the US' hidden foreign policy agenda in the Middle East. After the 1991 Gulf War, Scott Ritter helped lead the UN inspections in Iraq and found himself at the centre of a dangerous game between the Iraqi and US regimes. Operating in a fog of espionage and counter-espionage, Ritter and his team were determined to find out the truth about Iraq's WMD. The CIA was equally determined to stop them.
