Iraq, Inc.: A Profitable Occupation

Pratap Chatterjee is an investigative journalist and the Managing Editor of CorpWatch, an organization that exposes the negative impacts of corporate behavior and the connections between corporations and the politicians who support them. He is also the host of the environmental radio program “Terra Verde” on KPFA and a co-founder of Project Underground.

Chatterjee’s new book, _Iraq, Inc._, investigates how U.S. foreign policy is influenced by war profiteering. Friends and business associates of the present administration – companies like Halliburton, Bechtel, DynCorp, and others – have found a way into the “new” Iraq, trying to cash in on the disaster that a brutal dictator, years of U.S.-led sanctions, and an unprecedented “preventive attack” have created. Since it is we, the ordinary people of the United States, who will pay the ultimate price, it is essential that we know the true course of our foreign policy: who it is our leaders are actually representing, and the real reason our soldiers are killing and dying.
