Greenwald is a lot like Michael Moore -- self-righteous, pompous, completely dishonest, and in steadfast refusal to accept anything other than the position he holds. But at least Michael Moore once, long ago, had a talent for providing provocative documentary work; Greenwald does not.

In 1987 Gordon Gekko declared "that greed, for lack of a better word, is good" I am sure even he would be sickened by the tale of greed, corruption and inhumanity. A must see.

A very good documentary about the no-bid contracts companies like Blackwater have been awarded. The kind of stuff that has been happening for years, what Eisenhower warned us about, but is never fully investigated as I believe there is a third wing to that collusion - media.

I've been to the desert nations three different times. I don't remember seeing company names in those days. We have been trained since we first entered service how to basically build a village. There are different names for different housekeeping kits such as harvest falcon, harvest bare. These kits are actually a base in a box. There are a certain amount of expandable shelters for lodging, large rubber bladders to fill with potable water, the same bladders to hold jet fuel and diesel fuel. In peacetime we watched videos, and trained to assemble these. The last time I deport November 1998 operation Desert thunder/operation Monica Lewinsky, it was to BHRAIN. When we arrived contractors had already assembled the kits, and they were already building a tent city. We were merely helpers under supervision of the contractors. Contractors prepared meals operated the "mess hall".
My first two trips to the desert 1) Kobar towers for housing. The second trip UAE, we stayed downtown multistory nice hotels, transported back and forth to the airbase.

if this documentary doesn't shake you and make you think, "hhhmm, actually there is something completely corrupt at the heart of this war" then i don't know what will. very well put together and very, very illuminating.

A shocking but sloppy piece of agit prop showing corporate cronyism stealing billions, undermining security and costing lives in a privatised war...

Established documentarian Robert Greenwald (‚??Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price‚?? & ‚??Uncovered: The War on Iraq‚??) continues his polemic crusade against Bush era policy with this attack on the privatisation of the War in Iraq by an administration with a deeply rooted network of links to the private corporations which profit.

The film starts with an emotive look at two Blackwater contractors killed by company cost-cutting exercises before moving on to look at the involvement of private interrogators in the prisoner abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib, the loss of military jobs to private contractor and the costplus arrangement which encourages these private contractors to overspend and overcharge for their services.

CorpWatch founder and ‚??Fahrenheit 9/11‚?? contributor Pratap Chatterjee heads up the usual battalion of experts which this time out includes journalist Charles Lewis, camp commandant Janis Karpinski and conscientious objector Aidan Delgado, but it is the disgruntled servicemen, former contractors and bereaved families which give this film its heart.

The reinvented television director takes his cue from ‚??Unconstitutional: The War on Our Civil Liberties‚?? by Nonny de la Pe√Īa, as he sidelines his array of talking heads in favour of some slightly editorialised personal stories which bring the entire production to life and allows it to look behind the headlines at those betrayed by the administration‚??s pro-corporate policies.

‚??Rethink this very, very carefully.‚??
