Looks like a good video. Too bad it costs money... information like this would benefit the country more if it was free. Then again, I guess it costs money to make a documentary like this.
The story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war.
Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq (Blackwater, Halliburton/KBR, CACI and Titan) and the decision makers who allow them to do so.

Another example of gouged prices, the plastic dispossable plates, are $50. a plate, our defac goes through thousands of those plates a day. A case of soda, $45. for Saudi version of Coke a Cola!
Thank you Haliburton, NOT.

Except they're not 10,000 miles away, they're based right there in the middle east and have been for some time since they bailed out of their US address, and Iraq can hardly be described as a "warzone". They go through no more risk in providing their astronomically inflated crap than any other company delivering goods in an American city. I'm willing to bet that Walmart has more work related injuries in a year than Haliburton has had in Iraq to date.
Just in case you thought I was talking out of my ass, here is Haliburton's Injury Rate for the last six years and a page on Walmart's Injury Rates.
