‘Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers’ to Appear at The Tower Theatre
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Robert Greenwald's new documentary film will be shown at 7 p.m., Saturday, October 28

"Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers," Robert Greenwald's new documentary film about the deadly corporate privatization of Iraq, will show in an exclusive one-night engagement at 7 p.m., Saturday, October 28, at the Tower Theatre in downtown Bend.

Tickets are $8 at the door; $5 for students and seniors. "Iraq For Sale" is co-sponsored by the Deschutes County Democrats, Central Oregon Jobs with Justice, and the Sierra Club Juniper Group, and produced by Pure Magic Productions. Information about sponsoring organizations and refreshments will be available in the Tower Theatre lobby when doors open at 6 p.m.

"Iraq For Sale" is a powerful documentary that looks at the devastating role that U.S.-based corporations like Halliburton, Raytheon and Blackwater Security have played in Iraq--as contractors for reconstruction, services and security.

The 75-minute film documents of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war. Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald ("Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price," "Outfoxed," and "Uncovered") takes viewers inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. "Iraq For Sale" uncovers the connections between private corporations making huge profits in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so.

Senator Ted Kennedy calls "Iraq For Sale" a "convincing indictment of the Administration's decision to give multi-billion dollar sweetheart deals that have lined contractor's pockets while failing to meet the basic needs of our soldiers. All Americans should be asking how the Bush Administration could have allowed contractors to fail to provide our soldiers with safe food and drinking water."
