The British and American coalition which had overthrown Saddam Hussein was given a very special responsibility by the United Nations. It was given trusteeship of more than 20 billion dollars that belonged to the people of Iraq. Over the next 40 months, it spent almost all of it. Yet, no one can account for where it all went. Literally billion of dollars have gone missing.

In this revealing documentary, Dr. Ali Fadhil, a young Iraqi doctor, sets out to learn what has led to the catastrophic results when money was put into the care of the U.S. led coalition. What emerges is a disturbing tale of corruption and fraud. As word spread of the kind of money that could be made in Iraq, foreign contractors negotiated deals fast and furiously.

There was no oversight of projects. “As trustees, we did a very poor job,” admits Frank Willis, a senior member of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA). “We should have spent the money on the Iraqi people, rather than putting it in the pockets of foreign business.” According to the United States’ own figures, Iraq’s essential services are worse than before the war, with the country producing less electricity, oil or clean water.

Secrets Of The Secret Service is an exhaustive investigation into America’s most mysterious law enforcement agency, detailing the weapons and tactics they use to protect the President of the United States.

Many of the service’s current methods and technology have been introduced as a result of tragedy. The assassination of President John F Kennedy laid bare a catalogue of errors which left him vulnerable.

One of the major innovations to arise from that fateful day in Dallas was the redesign of the presidential limousine — which is more like a tank than a car, sporting bullet-proof windows, tear gas cannons and significant armour plating.

One of the things to come from it was a change in the weaponry used. Agents now carry FNP90 submachine guns, with body armour piercing rounds. These allow an assailant to be taken out with pinpoint accuracy, without danger to the inevitable large crowds surrounding the President.

Including interviews with ex-agents and a former White House press secretary, Secrets Of The Secret Service examines everything from the service’s training techniques to the protocols used when the President is aboard Air Force 1.
