Hitchens vs Chomsky
In short, we do not know who organized the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, or any other related assaults, though it would be a credulous fool who swallowed the (unsupported) word of Osama Bin Laden that his group was the one responsible. An attempt to kidnap or murder an ex-president of the United States (and presumably, by extension, the sitting one) would be as legally justified as the hit on Abbottabad. And America is an incarnation of the Third Reich that doesn’t even conceal its genocidal methods and aspirations. This is the sum total of what has been learned, by the guru of the left, in the last decade.
I have never understood the left’s fascination with Noam Chomsky. I would suggest that this would finally be the occasion on which Chomsky would stand completely discredited in the eyes of the left, except that there have been so many other similar occasions without any repercussions to his reputation.
