"Mr. Greenwald compiles a horrifying catalog of greed, corruption and incompetence among private contractors in Iraq....Extremely effective."
Acclaimed documentarian Robert Greenwald (OUTFOXED) helms this look at the changes that have occurred in Iraq since its liberation--and finds some disturbing evidence of corporate corruption and greed.
Description by Ryko Distribution:
With the 2003 documentary UNCOVERED: THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT THE IRAQ WAR, Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films broke the story of the Government's hidden reasons for the Iraq War. IRAQ FOR SALE: THE WAR PROFITEERS, Brave New Films' new documentary, reveals the true "shock and awe" of how funds earmarked for Iraq reconstruction have been misused.
IRAQ FOR SALE: THE WAR PROFITEERS exposes the extent of corruption in Iraq, exploring its human cost by telling the stories of those involved and affected. This new film illustrates an astonishing pattern of corruption, connecting the dots between major corporations and high-level policy makers.
This is the story no one has yet dared to tell, outlining a disturbing pattern of abuse and mismanagement by the Department of Defense and private security companies. It is the full story of violations, wrongdoings and immorality of the policy-makers, corporations, and government officials involved; this is the tip of the iceberg of a major political scandal!
Using whistleblowers, first hand accounts, corporate financial records and top-secret documents, IRAQ FOR SALE: THE WAR PROFITEERS tells the story that has been kept away from the general public.
