The story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war.
Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed, and Uncovered) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so.

    ACTION: Write to your Congresspersons and Senators and ask them to frame their Constitutional role as the Framers did. We suggest that you raise the following issues:

    The Constitution provides Congress with the power to define the military agenda, including troop re-deployment and the establishment of timetables.

    The role of the president is to carry out the agenda defined by Congress.

    Congress must continuously assert its Constitutional power and responsibility.

    Congress must not give in to the betrayal myth. The president was offered funding with timetables but he turned it down — he is the betrayer.

    Congress must frame the matter as an issue of Constitutional authority

    Congress must place the safety of the troops directly in the hands of the commander-in-chief, whose job is to carry out the agenda given by Congress, which includes protecting the safety of our troops.

    Don’t just write to your Congressperson. Write to the editors of your local newspapers. Flood the email boxes of the television and radio news shows, as well as national magazines. Send this call for action to your email lists. And write to progressive activist organizations like MoveOn, Democracy for America, and so on, to ask their memberships to support this action.

    And don’t do it just once. Repetition is the key to success. Keep it up until the next funding vote in September.
