Film delves into America's covert wars
BRATTLEBORO — Join with Brattleboro Solidarity at 118 Elliot Street at 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29, for a presentation and discussion of the 2013 film "Dirty Wars."
The film follows investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill, author of the international bestseller "Blackwater," into the hidden world of America's covert wars, from Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia, and beyond. As Scahill digs deeper into the activities of JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command), he is pulled into a world of covert operations unknown to the public and carried out across the globe by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. In military jargon, JSOC teams "find, fix, and finish" their targets, who are selected through a secret process. No target is off limits for the "kill list," including U.S. citizens. This film is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted. For more information follow Brattleboro Solidarity on Facebook.
