Dirty Wars is a Sundance Film Festival award-winning  documentary that follows investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill as he chases down the hidden truth behind the US government's "global war" theory, used to justify killings around the world with drones and other weapons. The U.S. government's "global war" theory is being used to justify human rights violations.  Amnesty International is pushing to have the law at the heart of the "global war" theory - 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) – repealed.
