Introduction

How to use the interactive timeline

This "Buying the War" Interactive Timeline lets you view some of the media coverage leading up to the Iraq War. Click on "headlines" to see newspaper coverage (and read the articles), choose documents for more important articles and the documents in the case (for example U.S. and U.N. reports), watch video from the documentary, media coverage and analysis.

Alternatively you can peruse much of the print coverage by using our References section, which lists material by media outlet. Also, find out more about the journalists and others featued in "Buying the War" in the Biographies section, and continue your research with our Resources list. You can also watch and read additional interviews from the production of "Buying the War," including former weapons inspector Scott Ritter, online only.
