Iraq For Sale
Robert Greenwald's film, "Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers," exposes the greedy, corrupt and incompetent business of war in the hands of private contractors in Iraq.
Military personnel, journalists, former Abu Ghraib prisoners and former employees of the companies in which the film focuses, Halliburton, Blackwater Security Consulting, and CACI International, present their accusations and expose the dealings of the mentioned companies.
"Iraq for Sale" starts by detailing how much income the Iraq war has produced for corporations. Halliburton heads the list with $18.5 billion, two other companies top $5 billion and the security firm Blackwater earned $21 million just guarding former U.S. ambassador L. Paul Bremer III.
The victims of these corporations, apart from the American tax-payers at large, are civilian truck drivers who believed they were going to help reconstruct Iraq, and US soldiers who are forced to use the services provided by these companies.
The film is funded by the donations of over 3000 people, and it's a wake up call for America.
A Brave New Films 2006 release. Director Robert Greenwald. Producers Greenwald, Jim Gilliam, Devin Smith, Sarah Feeley. Director of photography Nick Higgins. Editors Carla Gutierrez, Sally Rubin.
