‘DIRTY WARS’ with Jeremy Scahill




Ticket Info

General Admission: $5

Event Description

Barack Obama, assassin? War journalist Jeremy Scahill investigates the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), a once-covert unit he believes is executing those on the President’s secret “kill list” of alleged enemies of the state. A reporter for the Nation and author of the bestselling Blackwater (which revealed U.S. corruption in Iraq), Scahill visits an Afghan village where U.S. forces killed a family, including pregnant women, and scrubbed the scene of evidence. Then, after JSOC’s successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, it targets an American citizen who has turned to radical Islam. Astonishing and dramatic—a real-life ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN—Richard Rowley’s film builds a deeply troubling case that the “global war on terror” has spread beyond borders and spun out of control. Based on the book Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield, and shown in combination with Scah ill's sold-out performance at the Lensic October 30. Scahill and producer Anthony Arnove will be present for post film Q&A. (U.S., 2013, 90m, digital video)
