An examination of war profiteering in Iraq by Brave New Films

This documentary produced by Brave New Films examines the billions of dollars that flowed from the American taxpayer through the government and into the hands of private contractors, most of whom had paid off government officials with campaign donations.

Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers © War Report Project, LLC, is the story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war. Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq (Blackwater, Halliburton/KBR, CACI and Titan) and the decision makers who allow them to do so.
