realtime-greenwald.jpg Robert Greenwald, Director of the new film Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers, talks to Bill Maher about the egregious war profiteering taking place in Iraq by private companies like Halliburton, CACI, Bechtel and Blackwater. These for-profit companies are taking advantage of the American taxpayers at the expense of the troops and the Iraqi people and have been allowed by the rubber-stamp GOP congress to operate with impunity. You can buy a copy for $12.95 and support Greenwald here or view the film in full here. If there's one good thing a Democratic Congress will bring, it's oversight of these horrendous (yet status quo) practices.

Greenwald is a genius whose films are the definitive works to date on a myriad of controversial topics including the 2000 election, pre-war intelligence manipulation and FOX News' contempt for journalism. All of them can be viewed on Google Video for free as well here:
