NEW YORK TIMES: "a horrifying catalog of greed, corruption and incompetence"

LA TIMES: "might unite viewers across all political spectra"

HOUSTON CHRONICLE: "Greenwald tackled a tough subject that Congress won't face"

LA DAILY NEWS: "Iraq for Sale is one Greenwald film with an agenda that maybe everybody can get behind. Conservatives seeing "Iraq for Sale" can seethe at the atrocious waste of taxpayer dollars. Liberals can decry the unprecedented depth and breadth of privatization in Iraq. "

VILLAGE VOICE: "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; the wounds are fresh and the testimony of civilian contractors and their bereaved family members is appropriately raw."

TV GUIDE: "carefully researched, and crucial to fully understanding the Iraqi/American enterprise."

DOWNWITHTYRANNY: "I had a chance to see it as a work in progress and it blew my mind....No one should miss a chance to see this movie." - Howie Klein

HUFFINGTON POST: "Greenwald, the master of the issue-doc, has delivered a film that connects on both an emotional and an intellectual level. And, most importantly, it does so by letting the facts -- and the victims of the war's privatization -- speak for themselves." -Arianna Huffington

TAPPED: "It is a great film about a rather sore, sordid subject that President Bush (shown giving a pathetic, mocking answer to a questioner who dared asked about accountability for private contractors), former Halliburton CEO Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld and other neocons would rather not discuss, ever. Which is why people should buy the DVD and watch it, with friends." -Tom Schaller

HUFFINGTON POST: "I saw Robert Greenwald's IRAQ FOR SALE this weekend and I was really impressed by how emotionally and politically powerful it is. The audience cheered at the end, and for good reason: this is an important film. It's also one of the most truly patriotic movies I've seen in a long time. Please see it." -Jeff Kaufman

AMERICABLOG: "I was blown away. It is a riveting, powerful production that should be at the top of everyone's list to see, and then buy for everyone you know. ... Iraq for Sale explains difficult and emotional issues in a measured way that will resonate with people regardless of their background knowledge or political beliefs." - AJ in DC

BUZZFLASH: "Iraq for Sale hits the gut with a punch by focusing on the victims of privatizing our military. The gripping documentary leaves little doubt that war is now being waged, in large part, for the direct profit of a few well-connected companies." - Mark Karlin

OCWEEKLY: "Make[s] you hate this fucked-up quagmire even more."
