In this clip, Maher interviews filmmaker Robert Greenwald to talk about his latest movie, “Iraq for Sale,” which focuses on the hidden capitalist interests of those who are profiting from the war. Greenwald reveals that our tax dollars are going into the pockets of corporations rather than toward the reconstruction effort or the military. We all know the Iraq war was about money, but the actual level of corruption is mind-blowing. We spend over $275 million per day fighting in Iraq, and for what exactly? The only people who have benefited are the corporations.
