This week’s featured documentary film, curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE.

This ground-breaking documentary film reveals what is perhaps one of the single greatest gravy trains in US history – where a gaggle of hand-picked U.S. corporate contractors are give access to Iraq during and after the illegal war waged by the US, UK and their willing allies. Interviews with employees and former employees of such companies as Halliburton, CACI, and KBR expose a system of cronyism and “sweetheart” deals that gave enormous profit windfalls for supplying support and material for US troops while providing almost no oversight. Interviewees discuss how companies abused their own workers, ex-soldiers, and of course Iraqi residents. An incredible exposé.
