Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers



'Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers' is a documentary about the 2002-2006 Iraq War and the behavior of contractors in that war. The movie was made by Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films. The movie criticizes the greed, waste, and ineffectiveness of the contractors used. Specifically, the film claims contractors are over-billing the government and doing substandard work. It contended that the boards of each of the four companies it talked about (which it implies are the largest contractors in Iraq), are composed of ex-military and ex-government people who help these companies get and keep these over-large contracts, some of which they don't even have to bid for.

The companies criticized by name are: Blackwater, KBR-Halliburton, CACI, and Titan.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
