The Iraq war has unleashed such a torrent of opinion...impassioned polemic, neo-con apologia, world-weary cynicism...that it feels like the important truths are being lost in a media feeding-frenzy.
Eliot Weinberger eschews the rhetoric of the soapbox in an extraordinary montage of facts, sound-bites and testimonies.
He assembles an uncompromising and blackly comic narrative, which permits the voices of the war to speak for themselves, and allows the protagonists to damn themselves in their own words.
