Documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald acknowledges he is less interested in filling theater seats than in filling seats in Congress.
The director has planned the release of his latest documentary, "Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers," with the goal of overthrowing the status quo in the Nov. 7 congressional election.
With "Iraq for Sale," Greenwald hopes to open a new front in the debate over the war by questioning the competence, accountability and ethics of U.S. companies providing contract services in Iraq. If his film causes trouble for the defense contractors he has targeted - including San Diego's Titan Corp. - Greenwald says he would count that as a bonus.
