Are U.S. tax dollars fueling an illicit human pipeline that exploits and endangers foreign workers? Reporter Cam Simpson of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE began investigating when he saw a news report about a dozen impoverished men from Nepal who were kidnapped and killed while being transported to Iraq for jobs that supported U.S troops. Simpson retraced their steps back to the subcontractor who originally hired the workers, and uncovered a web of deceit and coercion.
Aired last year, this program has already received a CINE Golden Eagle and has been nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy (winners will be announced September 24).
