The world governments wanted the story of weapons of mass destruction to be true. They’re willing to overlook all the lies and falsehoods just to topple Saddam Hussein in Operation Curveball that starred Sebastian Blomberg and Virginia Kull.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Operation Curveball tells the true story of how the Iraq war, with the involvement of the German government and secret service, was started based on faulty intelligence.

Bioweapons expert Dr. Arndt Wolf of the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) is obsessed with the idea that, despite UN inspections, anthrax is still being produced in Iraq. Back home in Germany, Wolf’s superior Schatz assigns him as the case officer for the Iraqi asylum seeker Rafid Alwan because Alwan claims to have worked as an engineer for Saddam Hussein’s secret bioweapons program.

This is a rare triumph for a secret service badly in need of a win: finally, they have a piece of intelligence that would put them one step ahead of the CIA. What they are missing, though, is proof, the search which proves difficult, as Alwan (the man they called “Curveball”) is well aware of his value to the agency. His claims end up serving a number of different interests, including the CIA, and the German government, as everyone tries to use his story for their own purposes.
