In 75 harrowing minutes, Greenwald spells out why the war has been, for this administration and its friends, a windfall no matter which side claims victory and how many Americans and Iraqi civilians die.

If Greenwald can sneak this onto the air in place of this week's Desperate Housewives, we might start to see some changes around here.

A credible indictment against corporations currently enjoying windfall profits thanks to the Iraq war.

... Iraq for Sale has an us-versus-them sensibility that's extremely effective.

Whatever you might think about the centrality of the profit motive to our society, what's going on in Iraq is going to give you pause.

Iraq for Sale isn't balanced or objective. It carries the torch for the families of civilians who died while driving unprotected trucks on unsafe routes.

While it doesn't deviate from the snippy, newsmagazine format of its predecessors, Iraq for Sale stays mostly on point and on target, as Greenwald trains his sights on the ruinous consequences of corporate involvement in the Iraq war.

Both a trenchant indictment of war profiteering in Iraq and a memorial for those not included in the military's death toll, Iraq for Sale is a work of intense disillusionment.
