Winner of the 2005 Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Eugene Jarecki's groundbreaking documentary dissects the political, economic and historic reasons behind our increasingly aggressive military strategy since the end of World War II. The film opens with President Eisenhower's 1961 farewell speech, in which he warned Americans of the growing power of the "military industrial complex." Expanding upon Eisenhower's warning, Jarecki relies on interviews with American soldiers, government officials, military insiders, defense industry personnel, congressman, scholars, ordinary Iraqis, and others to provide analysis of the last 50 years of U.S. military expansion, wars and interventions.
