During an interview, British Cabinet Minister Simon Foster delivers an off-the-cuff remark that war in the Middle East is ''unforeseeable.'' Profane political spin doctor Malcolm Tucker tries to cover up Foster's faux pas, but the ill-conceived comment is picked up by a warmongering American official. Foster is invited to Washington, D.C., where a war of words brews as politicians maneuver, manipulate and deceive each other before a U.N. vote on military action.
