"Utterly riveting." The New York Times
Dirty Wars follows investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill, author of the best-seller Blackwater, into the heart of America’s covert wars, from Afghanistan to Yemen and beyond. Part political thriller and part detective story, this Sundance award-winning film is a gripping journey into one of the most underreported stories of our time. What begins as a report on 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, whose teams “find, fix, and finish” their targets in covert operations unknown to the public.
