A Conversation for 'The Trial of Henry Kissinger' - a Book Review
Mister Matty Started conversation Jul 18, 2002
"there is no sign of the physical and intellectual deterioration that has been evident in Hitchens during recent months."
Nonsense! Hitchens is simply not being a hypocrite, he is a staunch left-winger and defender of many of the traditional values of that creed, including the idea that ordinary people should be defended from extremism, murder excused by political ideology, and ends-justifies-the-means talk (reasons for his hatred of Kissinger). The 11th September attacks were attacks by reactionary extremists against civilians and Hitchens, like many intelligent and concience-driven left-wingers ignored the anti-American knee-jerk sentiments that followed and supported the United States response as, not American imperialism, but an attack on religious totalitarianism. He was absolutely correct.
