Dirty Wars

Dirty Wars

IN PERSON
Jeremy Scahill, Journalist
Richard Rowley, Director
Moderator: Karen Greenberg, Director of Center on National Security, Fordham Law School
Introduced by Glenn Greenwald, Journalist (Via Skype)

One of the most acclaimed documentaries of this year, Dirty Wars investigates covert wars around the world being fought by the US military. Journalist Jeremy Scahill and director Richard Rowley track down clues about the War on Terror and the use of drones in secretive battles. Dirty Wars works remarkably on many levels, from the journalistic to the cinematic, in exposing secrets about undeclared military attacks and the secretive mission of the Joint Special Operations Command. Few documentaries have illuminated the journalistic process, how to find patterns in facts despite governmental obfuscation, while exposing dark areas of foreign policy that have not been uncovered by the mainstream press. Dirty Wars has been praised as vital and gripping, distinguished by its “tough investigative tone and surprisingly stylish photography” and is considered by many the most provocative documentary of the year.

Much information has been disseminated since the initial release of Dirty Wars, especially the revelations about the National Security Agency by Edward Snowden. Scahill, Rowley, and other experts will examine what we have recently learned about drones and targeted killing, as well as which wars need further investigation.
