DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN AT THE NEW YORK TIMES
Judith Klinghoffer of Deja Vu sent me some thoughts in an email on a recent New York Times " analysis " of how the invasion of Iraq affected the larger War on Terror:
"This absurd deception goes even beyond what Jean Francis Revel in Anti-Americanism calls "a mechanism for reversing responsibility for crime." It is possible to argue that terrorism in Iraq (though not Iraqi sponsored terrorism) followed the overthrow of Saddam. It is not possible to argue that terrorism in Colombia, Chechnia, Nepal, Kashmir, Israel, Somalia, ect. began after 9/11 and, hence, are the result of the war on terror. Yet, that is precisely the impression Don Van Natta's article seeks to give. "
