What I knew is that there have been different objections on the part the US embassy addressed to different Greek governments because of my TV program aired on the public channel — ERT
. I had a weekly TV program, reportage and documentaries. Reportage Without Frontiers was a very well-known - it was named the top news program in the country four times and received numerous international awards.
The US embassy in Athens was also watching it and they were against it because the program was critical of the 2003 invasion of Iraq — and also the lies that have been told to justify it.
I had done a documentary one year after the invasion that was called 25 Plus One Lies to Sell a War
. It was about the lies the US administration, as well as the British administration told the public.
After it was aired, the documentary got a high rating and the American embassy addressed the government directly again, saying: "How do you expect us to help you in the Cyprus question, when there is a program on the Greek public broadcaster attacking the official US policy."
I always tried to represent the other side — the opinion of the American authorities. The lies however, were discovered by American people, activists and diplomats who were critical of the Iraq invasion.
