Dirty Wars: Jeremy Scahill and Rick Rowley’s Film About US Covert Warfare

Jeremy Scahill, investigative reporter for the Nation and author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful mercenary Army, has teamed up with director Rick Rowley for a new documentary called "Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield," which is being screened this weekend at the Sundance film festival. The film follows Scahill as he uncovers covert ops in Yemen, Somalia and Afghanistan. This interview from this morning's airing of Democracy Now is a must watch. Besides being one of the best field reporters out there, Scahill manages to also be one of the funniest people on twitter. I highly recommend following him.
