Documentary portraying the actions of U.S. corporate contractors in the U.S.-Iraq war. Interviews with employees and former employees of such companies as Halliburton, CACI, and KBR suggest that government cronyism is behind apparent "sweetheart" deals that give such contractors enormous freedom to profit from supplying support and material to American troops while providing little oversight. Survivors of employees who were killed discuss the claim that the companies cared more for profit than for the welfare of their own workers, and soldiers indicate that the quality of services provided is sub-standard and severely in contradiction to the comparatively huge profits being generated. Also depicted are the unsuccessful attempts by the filmmakers to get company spokesmen to respond to the charges made by the interviewees.Written by

Yet another documentary which gives you the right directions to uncover the tremendous amount of lies and greed of gain which lies within the US government and capitalistic systems in general today. Take this film as a eye opener, as a teaser to activate your own motivations in finding and judging these criminal acts that go unpunished these days. I'm no American but German. Nevertheless, corruption, profit, oppression, exploitation all these terms count as much in Germany as they do in the US.
Don't take this film as the ultimate documentary, but see it as one of those small pieces which fit into the big picture of what our modern world has become.
