El Biffo's rating of the film Dirty Wars

Very well directed doc that moves along at a brisk pace, without a lot of people sitting around in chairs talking. But Scahill draws no conclusions! As an investigative journalist, he dredges up horrendous activities by JSOC, and the drone bombing program, but offers no rationale for why USA is attacking innocent people. We have to guess. OK, here's my best guess: it's profitable for military contractors.
