Despite what you might have read in the over-hyped reviews for “In the
Loop”, this is not a satire on the build-up to any war in the Middle
East, including the one that began in 2003. It is instead a commentary
on the back-stabbing behavior of high-powered governmental functionaries
in the U.S. and Great Britain that throughout its 106 minutes contains
not a single political conversation.

You missed on this one. It's a caustic look at how the Americans fabricated
the intelligence to justify the invasion and how the Blair government,
represented by the Alistair Campbell character, played the poodle. The movie
is built around that; it's the backstabbing which is incidental.
