Rent the film IRAQ-The War Profiteers

I got this card in the mail on Saturday and it gave me the chills because I had just watched this documentary "Iraq: The War Profiteers" from Robert Greenwald, who also directed "Outfoxed". Anyhow, they talk about how these private companies (Halliburton, CACI, Aegis, Titan) are making BILLIONS in Iraq but of course they are all corrupt and cheap and do not protect their employees. One interviewee discusses how he was hired to be a translator for American troops yet he was never once given any kind of test to see if he was even qualified! So our soldiers go into dangerous neighborhoods with some guy who may only know 6 words of Arabic. TERRIBLE.
