'Iraq for Sale,' a new film by Robert Greenwald, charges private US firms with war profiteering, torture, and murder in Iraq.

Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers

(Starz, 10 p.m., July 14): Profiteering, torture, murder – these are the charges that acclaimed filmmaker Robert Greenwald levels against private firms operating in Iraq. Using testimony from eyewitnesses, Senate hearings, and press coverage, this film paints a picture of such widespread corruption and greed that it's hard to believe it might actually be true – from Halliburton burning millions of dollars of unused equipment in order to run up its bill with the US military to Blackwater deliberately sending underequipped civilians to their deaths in a restricted area. Both firms turned down Greenwald's interview requests, but even if only a fraction of the charges are true, this is a must-see for any American. Grade: A
