Why We Fight (2005)
President Eisenhower's 1961 warning against the dangers of the "military-industrial complex" is put in a contemporary context in this compelling documentary. Using the War in Iraq as a backdrop, the film uses interviews with combat veterans, new recruits, members of Congress, security advisors, and more to examine how U.S. military policies have evolved since World War II. Directed by Eugene Jarecki ("The Trials of Henry Kissinger"). 99 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: French, Portuguese, Spanish; deleted scenes; featurettes; audio commentary; theatrical trailer.
