Iraq For Sale - The War Profiteers

Watch The Film Below

This is outrageous!!!! (translators who aren't even qualified???? Risking the lives of our people?) As I have been saying... someone needs to go to jail for this thing.

The much anticipated Robert Greenwald documentary- "Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers" is now available.

This is part II of an earlier blog entry on this subject that I made a few months ago.

See the earlier blog entry here. Take the time to check out the video of the Congressional Testimony (if it's still available).

Before watching the film listen to new interview with Robert Greenwald from KMOX radio. Host is Paul Harris.

Interview Here.

Additional Interview with David Mann, a U.S. Soldier who talks about his experience with Private contractors.
