Iraq For Sale - The War Profiteers
Documentary portraying the actions of U.S. corporate contractors in the U.S.-Iraq war. Interviews with employees and former employees of such companies as Halliburton, CACI, and KBR suggest that government cronyism is behind apparent "sweetheart" deals that give such contractors enormous freedom to profit from supplying support and material to American troops while providing little oversight.

Survivors of employees who were killed discuss the claim that the companies cared more for profit than for the welfare of their own workers, and soldiers indicate that the quality of services provided is sub-standard and severely in contradiction to the comparatively huge profits being generated. Also depicted are the unsuccessful attempts by the filmmakers to get company spokesmen to respond to the charges made by the interviewees

Daylight Robbery - What Happened to the $23billion?
Jane Corbin investigates claims that as much as $23bn may have been lost, stolen or not properly accounted for in Iraq. Now more than 70 whistleblower cases threaten to reveal the scandals behind billions of dollars worth of waste, theft and corruption during the war. The US justice department has imposed gagging orders which prevent the real scale of the problem emerging.

While we're at it, what about Coca Cola...?

Coca Cola - Corruption, Water Depletion, Pollution and Nazi Sponsorship
Coca-Cola is one of the most iconic brands of both the 20th and 21st centuries. Promoting itself as the drink of freedom, choice and US patriotism, the company's feel-good factor is recognised worldwide and reflected in its enormous profits.

But behind this carefully crafted image exists a company accused of environmental damage, human rights violations and questionable business practices.

Political activist and journalist Mark Thomas travels to South America, India and the US to investigate the way in which Coca-Cola and its suppliers operate and the extent to which they upholds moral and ethical obligations.

Thomas, a long-term critic of Coca-Cola's more controversial practices, finds disturbing evidence which undermines its effervescent image as a force for good and which has prompted a global consumer backlash.

Google Video: Pulled

As someone said in the comments on Vodpod: "get a copy while you can, it's very rare which shows the extent Coke will go to hide the truth..."

If this version gets pulled let me know and I'll find somewhere to upload a copy I've grabbed.

1. Coca Cola: We're sorry, but this video may not be available.
If this video was recently uploaded, it may still be processing.
If this video is yours, you can check its status.

4. Why not go after Blackwater and Wall Street and the Defense contractors?
Because Hannity is a partisan hack who doesn't really give a shit what happens to taxpayers' money unless it makes a Democrat look bad.

18. Fantastic point.
Answer: Blackwater and Wall Street and the Defense contractors are their buddies. They fill congress' campaign chest with money$$$ ~ so there is no way Congress is going to touch them. See?

5. Great points. I've wondered myself -
Planeloads of money go over to Iraq and disappear. Nobody seems to want to know why. Why aren't the idiot supporters of Fox News up in arms over that if their concerns about "Obamacare" is the future cost? And it's because Fox News doesn't give them that information.

These are all great issues and yet people are wasting time trying to come up with ways to depict Obama as a Nazi or an African tribesman.
