Conservative Defends War Profiteering

Rep. Jack Kingston, conservative from Georgia and member of the House Appropriations Committee, lights into film producer Robert Greenwald (Iraq for Sale, Walmart, The High Cost of Low Prices and Outfoxed: Rupert Murdock's War on Journalism) and author Jeremey Scahill (Blackwater) during the May 10 hearing on contractor abuses in Iraq, and gets a hearty pushback from Greenwald in return.

If you aren't aware of Greenwald's Iraq for Sale war-profiteering exposé documentary, which was funded by donations from over 3,000 folks, you can check out the clip here.

Linked below is a short 6 minute clip supplied by Greenwald's film company "Brave New Films" which documents the exchange between Greenwald and Kingston that occurred during the May 10 hearing, as Kingston first accuses Greenwald of profiteering off of the film, and after that argument is shot full of holes Kingston then turns to defending war profiteers.

civil behavior:

I cannot articulate my despair and outrage at the continuing display of hypocrisy that spews from the mouths of "compassionate conservatives" the likes of Rep. Kinngston from GA.

When will this nation have enough and stand up against evil like this?
