"Iraq For Sale" Producer Before Congress

I got this message in my inbox today:
Dear Iraq for Sale contributors,

I got the message on voice mail and played it back twice -- I couldn't quite believe what I was hearing. It was an invitation to come to D.C. and testify about outsourcing to the Defense Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee this coming Thursday, May 10th. Amazing! How far IRAQ FOR SALE has come!

To all of you who contributed to make this possible, I want to share our pleasure and excitement at Brave New Films at this chance to reach further into the ranks of the elected officials and public. Who would have thought just one year ago when we sent the letter, not sure if the film would or could happen...and now... Congress here we come!

I will have the chance to distribute 5 minutes of the film to all the committee members. Please help me figure out which clips to use, and if you have any other ideas or suggestions for my testimony, send them... quick!

I wish each and everyone of you could come with me, but we will post reports on my blog.

Robert Greenwald

This is awesome, and it's personal for me because I jumped in early on the "Iraq For Sale" project. Congratulations to Robert and the whole Brave New Films gang. Thanks for helping me feel like I make a difference.
