his movie opens many doors that don't want to be opened, 16 October 2006
Author: timberlax from Livingston, NJ

Just recently saw this on DVD and I have to say it opened my eyes to some of these issues with private contractors. Now I knew already that Halliburton and CACI and all those other companies really had no logical place in a war such as the one in Iraq, but some of the stuff they did like purposefully destroy their own equipment (in some cases sending their own employees in harm's way and having them killed by insurgents) because they would get compensated for it and profits would rise, is just plain monstrous. Not only that, but the amount of money that Congress has subsidized these companies is just incredibly outrageous. Money that could be used towards the $8 TRILLION dollar debt, or improving the health care system, or funding the education system better. And then using private contractors to do intelligence operations, such as interrogations...you saw what happened at Abu Graib - half the sickos who did the torture weren't even the military.

I mean WTF, America it's time to wake up!! Congress is incompetent since the majority always turns down all the major amendments that would control these types of criminal activities, with lobbyists controlling almost all of the legislative branch. And since Deick Cheney is the former CEO of Halliburton, you can see where this is connecting the dots.
