Summary
What, if anything, has American military power achieved in Iraq? What are the origins of the fractured nation's sectarian warfare? Are Iraqi security forces more dangerous than Islamist insurgents? This documentary features reports that U.S. and Iraqi government forces can be linked to the country's most dire security problems. Featuring interviews with high-ranking officials in the Interior Ministry and police chiefs in Mosul and Baghdad, the program investigates the actions of the so-called Wolf brigades, a U.S.-supported Shiite military group that participated in a number of anti-Sunni offensives and reportedly committed torture and other atrocities. The program also deals with other renegade militias, some trained by the same American operatives who allegedly created the Salvadoran death squads of the 1980s
