‘Dirty Wars’ follows investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill, author of the international bestseller Blackwater, into the heart of America’s covert wars, from Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia and beyond. Part political thriller and part detective story, ‘Dirty Wars’ is a gripping journey into one of the most important and underreported stories of our time. What begins as a report into a U.S. night raid gone terribly wrong in a remote corner of Afghanistan quickly turns into a global investigation of the secretive and powerful Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).
This eye-opening documentary lays bare the dirty little secret of America’s War on Terror: all bets are off, and almost anything goes. Drone strikes, night raids and government–condoned torture occur in hidden corners across the globe, generating unprecedented civilian casualties. Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret and elite fighting force in U.S. history, exposing covert ops, unidentifiable fighters who act with impunity and “kill lists” where no target is off-limits.
‘Dirty Wars’ opens in New York at IFC Center on Friday, June 7, 2013. The Sundance Film Festival ‘Best Cinematography‘ winner will screen multiple times daily with Jeremy Scahill, Professor Cornel West, Democracy Now!‘s Amy Goodman, MSNBC‘s Chris Hayes, The Center for Constitutional Right’s Pardiss Kebriael, Author David Riker & Rick Rowley in person.
