There's a movie out with this name that I can't recommend because it had unIslamic scenes. However, the movie is based on the book by the same name and you can get the overall story in other places as well.

It's all about the arms dealing the U.S. facilitated in Iraq after the invasion. A summary of the overall story was published in Rolling Stone magazine a few years ago, here's an extract:

Quote

For decades, weapons had been stockpiled in warehouses throughout the Balkans and Eastern Europe for the threat of war against the West, but now arms dealers were selling them off to the highest bidder. The Pentagon needed access to this new aftermarket to arm the militias it was creating in Iraq and Afghanistan. The trouble was, it couldn’t go into such a murky underworld on its own. It needed proxies to do its dirty work — companies like AEY. The result was a new era of lawlessness. According to a report by Amnesty International, “Tens of millions of rounds of ammunition from the Balkans were reportedly shipped — clandestinely and without public oversight — to Iraq by a chain of private brokers and transport contractors under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Defense.”

:salam:

I saw it. 

The case is a clear example of how jews can take part in evil business, and of the solidarity amongst their community when it comes to covering scandals.

See how the movie, a Hollywood product, handles the issue brillantly and almost manages to make the culprit look innocent. Somehow like they managed to divert people from the Weinstein case and made it trickle down from Jews to Muslims, through the infamous Tariq Ramadan case more recently.
