Rachel Maddow to host “Why We Did It,” new MSNBC special about Iraq War

Last year, MSNBC aired a successful documentary special about the Iraq War called Hubris: Selling the Iraq War, hosted by Rachel Maddow and based on the book by Michael Isikoff and David Corn. That program documented the false public case for the war.

Now, MSNBC will be airing a new, related program called Why We Did It, which the network says will “show a whole new, never-before-told story of what was happening behind that public case.” Newly obtained documents from the U.S. and abroad, as well as interviews with key players involved in the planning process and invasion, will feature in the new reporting for the documentary, again hosted by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

Among those interviewed in Why We Did It are former Ambassador L. Paul Bremer; Robert Ebel, former CIA Energy Analyst; Gary Vogler, retired Exxon-Mobil Executive and Defense Department Adviser; Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell; General Jay Garner, Director, Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance; Meghan O’Sullivan, former Bush Administration Deputy National Security Adviser on Iraq; Rob McKee, former vice president of Conoco Phillips and Defense Department Adviser; Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Cal); Dana Milbank of the Washington Post; Ron Suskind, author of The Price of Loyalty; Greg Muttitt, author of Fuel on the Fire; and Steve Coll, author of Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power.

Why We Did It premieres March 6 at 9pm ET on MSNBC.

    Finally a main stream tv is disclosing what has been stated since the very beginning by the ” media brain wash resistant” part of the world’ s population.
    Does that mean that America will have the guts to impeach G.W BUSH and his clique for war crimes?

    What a fantastic piece of journalism! I actually became nauseaus while watching it because I thought of the many service people who lost their lives for the benefit of big oil.
    Rachael, I watched “In Plane Sight” which is a precursor to your expose. This video depicted such things as the plane which hit the Pentagon. If you recall, there was no evidence of engines in the debris. Also, a chair with a book was intact which common sense dictates that this was not possible considering the impact etc. There are many other illustrations which would make you wonder if 10/11 was not carred out with the same intent of going into Iraq.

    Check it out PLEASE.
