The Iraq War came about following a moment of crisis – September 11th, 2001. It was a hugely significant event, and we are still reacting to the consequences of it, nearly 20 years on. I was young at the time, and far from the podder you know and love, but I do remember feeling how important all this was. I like many others in world, watched in real-time as world leaders made decisions based on fast-paced information presented to them, not unlike the moment we are currently facing in our country today. Many were flying by the seat of their pants you might say!But the public were not all happy. The response to the Iraq War led to an all-time low level of public trust in government and media, which is something we never fully recovered from. This is the content which the Fault Line will cover, including other defining moments in world history that shook human relations to their foundations. On the first season of The Fault Line: Bush, Blair and Iraq, renowned journalist, David Dimbleby, explores the 18 months between 9/11 and the start of the war and how the distrust in leadership response to crisis effects our world today.PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS AND CHECK OUT: The Fault Line: Bush, Blair and Iraq – premieres on September 29th on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts.
