We speak to whistleblower Katharine Gun on the film depicting her attempts to stop the Iraq War ‘Official Secrets’, starring Keira Knightley. She discusses how the US tried to spy and blackmail countries in the UN to support the Iraq War, Britain’s role in the US’ methods, the aftermath of the leaks and more!
STATEMENT FROM THE BBC’S KAMAL AHMED:
“The film is not a documentary and its portrayal of me is not fair or true – I don’t recognise any of what I am supposed to have said and done and no one checked anything with me”
“I wasn’t involved in this story in the way portrayed, and the film’s characterisation of my role and opinions about the story are untrue, as the film makers know.”
