The Kill Team (2013)

Director: Dan Krauss. 79 min. Documentary.

Imagine being fully armed, but bored to death, at war, in the country you've invaded. Then watching other bored invading soldiers create scenarios to set up the locals, and kill them for fun. And then facing lethal A Few Good Men-like punishments if you snitch on your comrades. This actually happened in Afghanistan, and this is the blood-curdling story of one whistle-blower, who while stuck in an "Emperor's New Clothes" situation in a community of fun-loving killers, paid dearly for doing what he thought was right. You'll suspect previous atrocities at Abu-Ghraib weren't done by just "a few bad apples".
