Iraq for Sale, the War Profiteers

A Robert Greenwald film 

Global Research Editor’s Note

The privatisation of War is a carefully researched documentary on the role of “Private Military Contractors” in Iraq.

“Efficiency in war”.

Iraq, a profit-driven war.
-Killing for profit.  
-The Corporate Money-Makers behind Abu Ghraib

Outsourcing War to Private Companies.

The justification was “to rebuild Iraq” 

Who are they?

–Dick Cheney’s Halliburton and its subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Roots (KBR),
–CACI, involved in “interrogation” in Abu Ghraib 
–Military Professional Resources Inc, (MPRI)

A multibillion dollar business financed by US tax-payers

A massive transfer of wealth into the hands of several Fortune 500 companies. “There is nothing but the money” for these companies.

Human life is unimportant.

“Contract profit became more important than the lives of the men they hired”.

Halliburton and KBR, which are featured in the film, are making profit out of war. Halliburton got the contracts without competitive bidding.

“There is a lack of competition in the defense industry”. KBR was pre-selected in a  corrupt system protected at the highest levels of the Bush administration. Run up the costs of war and make money…

Payback to Vice President Dick Cheney, who was a former CEO of Halliburton… Tax-payers are being ripped off… 

Congress turns a blind eye.   
This war has been privatised. Say no to the War Profiteers… Impeach Dick Cheney.

Michel Chossudovsky,  Global Research, 16 May 2007
