Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers

"We've employed corporations, private entities, to carry out inherent government functions."

Set to be released in Fall, 2006 by BraveNewFilms, Robert Greenwald's latest documentary takes aim at The War Profiteers.

This powerful film exposes a chilling, little covered aspect of the Iraq War - the fact that American civilians are frequently put in the line of fire in Iraq so corporations can make huge profits.

U.S. Army Brigadier General Janis Kapinski is shown in this trailer asking, "Can the Secretary of Defense, the Vice President, this administration, take the military to war to feed the greed of contractors?" Evidently, the answer is yes, as Robert Greenwald proves in yet another groundbreaking documentary, Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers.
