The Prisoner or: How I Planned to Kill Tony Blair is a 2006 documentary film by American documentary filmmaker Michael Tucker.
The film depicts Yunis Khatayer Abbas, an Iraqi journalist who was detained by US troops in 2003 and later imprisoned at Abu Ghraib prison for nine months. Although innocent, he was accused by American military officials of plotting to assassinate then British prime minister Tony Blair along with his two brothers.
Abbas and his brothers were suspected of being a bomb-making cell planning to kill British Prime Minister Tony Blair during a planned visit to Iraq. In September 2003, 2/3 Field Artillery raided his home and Abbas and his brothers were detained while Tucker filmed Abbas proclaiming his innocence.
