Praise for his book and his work:

“From the earliest days of the war, Dahr Jamail has been a human conduit for the voices of Iraqis living under US occupation. In the face of tremendous personal risk, his commitment to the crucial, principled task of bearing witness has never wavered, and this extraordinary book is the result.”

–Naomi Klein, author, No Logo and The Shock Doctrine.

“Dahr Jamail does us a great service, by taking us past the lies of our political leaders, past the coweardice of the mainstream press, into the streets, the homes, the lives of Iraqis living under US occupation. He is a superb journalist.”

–Howard Zinn, author, A People’s History of the United States
