While EXPOSÉ's "Blame Somebody Else" reveals the illicit human pipeline of foreign workers that keeps American military bases staffed and running, documentary filmmaker Lee Wang takes viewers behind-the-scenes to capture workers' living and working conditions in her film Someone Else's War. The documentary is told through the eyes of three Filipino service workers on an American military base in Iraq. With interviews and footage smuggled out of the country by Halliburton employees, filmmaker Lee Wang reveals the "invisible army" made up of more than 30,000 low-wage base workers from South and Southeast Asia. CHICAGO TRIBUNE reporter Cam Simpson served as a consultant on the film, and some of the footage of workers can be seen in “Blame Somebody Else.”
