As observed in the trailer, Scahill has definitely given readers and viewers quite a bit to consider – and much of it could arguably leave him in the crosshairs. But, for an investigative journalist, if someone is asking you if you’re looking over shoulder because of what you’ve exposed, it’s a good day. In this film, Scahill traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). This is the most secret tier of the U.S. military and intelligence operations, and JSOC has an unlimited “kill list”. No one is out of bounds – not even U.S. citizens.
