It’s the dirty little secret of the War on Terror:  all bets are off, and almost anything goes.  The rules of the game and of engagement have fundamentally changed.  Today drone strikes, night raids, and U.S. government targeted killings occur in corners across the globe, killing untold numbers of civilians.

Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill 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,” not even U.S. citizens.


Director Richard Rowley and writer-producer Scahill’s Dirty Wars is a chilling battle cry for the soul and conscience of an America few of us know exists.
