The Bases Are Loaded
Will the U.S. ever leave Iraq? Official policy promises an eventual departure, while warning of the dire consequences
of a "premature" withdrawal. But while Washington equivocates, facts on the ground tell another story. Independent journalist
Dahr Jamail, and author Chalmers Johnson, are discovering that military bases in Iraq are being consolidated from over a hundred
to a handful of "megabases" with lavish amenities. Much of what is taking place is obscured by denials and quibbles over the
definition of "permanent."
The Bases Are Loaded covers a wide range of topics. Gary Hart, James Goldsborough, Nadia Keilani, Raed Jarrar,
Bruce Finley Kam Zarrabi and Mark Rudd all add their observations about the extent and purpose of the bases in Iraq. Political
documentary focusing on terror attacks and their effects on the populations which suffer from them.
