Dirty Wars

86 mins


Jeremy Scahill, a reporter for The Nation and the protagonist of Dirty Wars, travels through some tough terrain (literally and metaphorically) to tell a disturbing story about American military might gone bad. Scahill weaves together the tragic effects of a drone strike intended for a cabal of terrorists that ended up hitting a Yemeni wedding party instead. The common thread running throughout his investigation is the shadowy, top-secret part of the military called the Joint Special Operations Command. Their role in fighting the global war on terror is shocking, but not as alarming as the fact that they appear to have little, if any, oversight from within the government, much less the public.
