Watch: Sundance War on Terror Documentary 'Dirty Wars' Trailer
The Sundance selected documentary Manhunt, about the pursuit of Osama Bin Laden, hits HBO on May 1st, but another War on Terror fueled doc from the indie festival is on the way to theaters. Dirty Wars follows the underground, sometimes shady, operations of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. With a clear agenda, the film seeks to open the eyes of Americans who might not be aware what their country is up to overseas as we fight terrorism around the world. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Richard Rowley's documentary Dirty Wars, originally from Apple:
Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill (author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Mercenary Army) traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. No target is off-limits for the JSOC "kill list," even a U.S. citizen. Richard Rowley directs Dirty Wars, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and hits theaters on June 7th this summer.

that was certainly worth a good laugh.

Why is that a good laugh? Is it so hard to believe that the United States has carried out operations that could be considered as terrorism? It seems fair for the film to be presenting an alternative viewpoint that some Americans would usually ignore.

no, it's not hard to believe - nor do i care how they wipe out terrorists - as long as they get the job done. what IS funny?.... the palpable liberal propaganda pervasive in this trailer. hey - if this guy (or any other person living in US...you included matt) don't like aspects about the country - stop whining and get out.

Such a childish response "stop whining and get out"You miss the point, if the U.S. engages in tactics as brutal as others a terrorist, then it is a crime. We are no better than they are and as a nation we should continue to hold our government and its people accountable for criminal acts, whether in war or non war times. Instead of encouraging people to leave because they disagree with your thoughtless point of view, you should encourage people to get involved and make a positive change and a difference in this nation.

However shady the methods may be I think the term - fighting terrorism - should be reiterated, you have to fight a dirty war to beat people who fight dirty

So you're going to become a terrorist to fight a terrorist. Now that's all fine and well but don't forget at the end of the day, you're now a terrorist. Not only that but you've instilled a terrorist worldview into an entire nation of people.

JSOC is not a "fighting force." It consists of tier one assets from three branches of the military... Anyway, its to their disadvantage that they cant actually show any tier one activity. Not even, tier two.
