Dirty Wars 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. Part action film and part detective story, Dirty Wars is a gripping journey into one of the most important and underreported stories of our time. What begins as a report on a deadly U.S. night raid in a remote corner of Afghanistan quickly turns into a global investigation of the secretive and powerful Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). As Scahill digs deeper into the activities of JSOC, 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.Written by

Kabul, Afghanistan, four in the morning. As an American jounalist I was used to finding stories in the middle of the night. But there is always something eerie, driving through the deserted streets. A city of three million, barely a streetlight on. There was a familiar routine, waiting for the crew to light up the next set so that you could see something in the background. But what could we really see?

I am writing this review on the documentary Dirty Wars created by Jeremy Scahill. For me the purpose of this documentary was to show awareness and spread the word about this unbelievable secret group that is killing innocent people for really no reason at all. I did not expect to see that much shocking information about our own US government. Jeremy Scahill did and actually finished what some people couldn't. I was really surprised to see Barack Obama involved with the problem. For the US government to actually kill U.S. CITIZENS was very shocking to me. But overall I really enjoyed the documentary and strongly recommend it for everyone. This documentary is a message everyone needs to see.
