Dirty Wars is coming home to US to roost and to war
I don't know what to think about "Dirty Wars" the movie I just watched on Netflix. Jeremy Scahill is an interesting figure. James Corbett of the Corbett Report questions Scahill's credibility.
Do you know what "JSOC" stands for? If you don't, why not do a word search?
I do not believe that Osama bin Laden was killed in a raid somewhat recently. I think it is all a case of a boatload of BS. I also think some, to most, of the "mass shootings" are suspicious, set up, or at minimum allowed to happen.
I do recommed everyone see "Dirty Wars". US Barack Obama and US Attorney General come off as accessories to murder, war criminals, and out to confine and kill journalists who expose the truth foreign and domestically.

Jeremy Scahill is an Investigative Journalist, Producer and Co-Writer of the Film Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield. Dirty Wars had its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and received rave reviews by the industry press, including this one by Variety, "This jaw-dropping, persuasively researched pic has the power to pry open government lockboxes." Hollywood Reporter wrote, "Its ugly truths may have seen plenty of sunshine (and even admiration) since the killing of Osama bin Laden, but the film's narrative drive offers a compelling package for viewers numbed by one news report after another about civilian deaths and secret hit lists. Its tough investigative tone and surprisingly stylish photography enhance cinematic appeal for a documentary that merits theatrical exposure."Jeremy Scahill is the National Security Correspondent for The Nation magazine and author of the international bestseller Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army, which won the George Polk Book Award. Scahill learned the journalism trade and got his start as a journalist on the independently syndicated daily news show Democracy Now! He has decided "time would be better spent by entering the struggle for justice in this country." In 1998, Scahill traveled to Iraq for Democracy Now! and Pacifica Radio, he reported on the impact of the economic sanctions on Iraq and the "No-Fly Zone" bombings in Northern and Southern Iraq. In 1999, he covered the 78-day NATO bombing of Serbia, reporting live from Belgrade and Kosovo. In 2000, Scahill reported from the Serbian parliament as the government of Slobodan Milosevic was brought down and was outside Milosevic's home the night the former president was arrested. Between 2001-2003, Scahill reported frequently from Baghdad for Democracy Now! and other media outlets, as the Iraq invasion began. Scahill has reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, the former Yugoslavia, post-Katrina Louisiana, and elsewhere across the globe. Scahill is a frequent guest on a wide array of programs, appearing regularly on The Rachel Maddow Show, Real Time with Bill Maher, and Democracy Now! He has also appeared on ABC World News, CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, The Daily Show, CNN, The NewsHour, MSNBC, Bill Moyers Journal, and NPR. In addition, Scahill has written for The Times, the Sunday Telegraph, the BBC, The Indypendent, The Los Angeles Times, Z Magazine, Socialist Worker, International Socialist Review, The Progressive, In These Times, and The Guardian. In addition, Scahill has posted material to the websites Alternet and CounterPunch. He has been a vocal critic of private military contractors, particularly Blackwater Worldwide, which is the subject of his book, Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army. The book received numerous accolades, including the Alternet Best Book of the Year Award, a spot on both the Barnes & Noble and Amazon lists of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2007, and notable mention in the New York Times. Scahill's work has sparked several Congressional investigations. In 2010, Scahill testified before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on the US's shadow wars in Pakistan, Yemen, and elsewhere, in which he stated: As the war rages on in Afghanistan and--despite spin to the contrary--in Iraq as well, US Special Operations Forces and the Central Intelligence Agency are engaged in parallel, covert, shadow wars that are waged in near total darkness and largely away from effective or meaningful Congressional oversight or journalistic scrutiny. The actions and consequences of these wars is seldom discussed in public or investigated by the Congress. The current US strategy can be summed up as follows: We are trying to kill our way to peace. And the killing fields are growing in number.
