i finally got up the strength to commit to watching this doc with Jeremy Scahill. it was tough to get through but it was a an important view. DIRTY WARS brings attention to the methods of JSOC as the US's unaccountable special ops who have unlimited funds, answer only to the white house and assassinate enemies with impunity anywhere in the world; spun from Afghanistan and Iraq. DIRTY WARS bolsters the narrative that america's war on terror is not only counter-productive but is the machine that creates more terrorists.

as someone who has live through and for the past 25 yrs followed closely the US' involvement in the middle east, this doc is yet another brush to paint the picture that the american military industrial complex is the force for evil bringing devastation anywhere for profit and the expense of everyone.

If you were to watch one movie about Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East, this would be it. It's sordid, compelling, and so attention grabbing.

America tries to kill its way to victory, but the war on terror produces new enemies with every killing.

This documentary had a worthwhile message, but it was tedious, boring and had no intrigue or sense of adventure with its hunt for knowledge.

It's OK, but it left me wanting much more.

The book is much better!

I knew of Scahill from the Blackwater novel and it is interesting to hear him speak in his own voice. Although he portrays himself as one man against the military industrial complex, we know that this is just one more amen to those who have chosen to talk about the forgotten costs of war.

It takes guts for a journalist to report these things.

The war on terror turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy

A true eye opener on the hidden face of what the US did to innocent ppl in the countries they invaded.

Half a star is generous only because he seems to actually have travelled to the Middle East, any truth in his "journalism" is overshadowed by Scahill's self loathing and close ups of him with varying sad face expression ensuring the viewer is never for one second confused regarding the real focal point of this "documentary" Scahill claims to be a seasoned war correspondent yet claims to have never heard of JSOC? Need I go on? What a joke.....

Chilling look at black ops.

A narrativa é tão intrigante quanto é assustadora, e certamente confere ao filme um tom de urgência e denúncia que não pode ser ignorado.

An interesting watch, but why does an American persist in calling them "the Americans"
It turns out he doesn't grasp the idea of war. And in war people die, back in the old days you killed the enemy (normally a different nationality) but now days the enemy comes from within.
Innocent people die in war so why does this investigator seem so keen on taking the other side. Films evoke thought and opinions I am fully aware mine are different to many.

Religion causes war, all the time people can't except we don't all think the same there will always be war.
