‘Dirty Wars’ sure to be insightful, illuminating and blunt

A new review of the upcoming documentary Dirty Wars was featured in the New York Times.

This particular passage stood out to me:

“Mr. Scahill subsequently learns that during one week in Afghanistan, there were 1,700 such night raids. His sleuthing leads to his discovery that the attack was carried out by the Joint Special Operations Command, a covert military unit that operates not only in Afghanistan but also in countries on which no war has been declared. Algeria, Indonesia, Jordan and Thailand are mentioned.”

I’m already learning that which I did not know. Also, the recounting of the pregnant women’s deaths, even if briefly done, sounds obviously tragic.

As a lover of documentaries, I am stoked for this one.
