BRATTLEBORO Brattleboro Solidarity Screening and Discussion - "Dirty Wars": "Dirty Wars "follows investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill, author of the international bestseller "Blackwater," into the hidden world of America's covert wars, from Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia, and beyond. This is a gripping journey into one of the most important and underreported stories of our time. As Scahill digs deeper into the activities of JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command), he is pulled into a world of covert operations unknown to the public and carried out across the globe by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. In military jargon, JSOC teams "find, fix, and finish" their targets, who are selected through a secret process. No target is offflimits for the "kill list," including U.S. citizens. 5 p.m. Free.
