Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers

As if FOX News and Wal-Mart weren't big enough targets, now Robert Greenwald takes on an even more powerful interest, the war profiteers.

In this video clip, ABC News takes a look at Greenwald's new documentary, Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers.

The film takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq For Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so.

This film opens in NYC on September 6 and is having its San Francisco premiere on September 13 at an event sponsored by AlterNet, Amnesty International, Working Assets, and Equality California. For information on this event or to order tickets click here.
