While a chaotic war rages in Iraq, George W. Bush is the sitting President of the United States. Working diligently alongside him is is Vice President Dick Cheney. Now as he sits at a table with Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, Professor Mark First Cutter, Admiral John Doe Sinister, and others, Cheney tells the group that it is their job to develop creative solutions to resolve a very complex problem. As of that moment, no weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq.
As more Americans die and are kidnapped in Iraq, the administration’s quest to find these weapons is becoming more desperate by the day. But everything is about to change when Cheney decides to visit Iraq and is abducted. When Cheney makes a decision that surprises everyone, he goes down in history as the only vice president captured during war who, for once, shoots from his hip instead of his mouth.
I Was Beheaded is a darkly humorous screenplay that satirizes the incompetence of the US administration during the Iraq War.
