Greenwald, who also created the films Uncovered: The War on Iraq and Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers, is using his Brave New Foundation as a vehicle for making the film part of an advocacy effort for initiating a citizen’s campaign to bring a new approach to the country where the U.S. has been at war for eight years.

Trailers and large parts of the film are available online. Here’s a segment that discusses how the war could further destabilize a nuclear-armed Pakistan:
