Cole v. Hitchens
The most prominent difference between Hitchens and the people at
Little Green Footballs is that Hitchens gets published in Slate.Juan Cole has an amazing piece up about Hitchens hacking and posting some of his private communications in yet another despicable smear campaign. The goal: Hitchens wants a war with Iran. Of course Hitchens' interpretation of the messages he pilfered doesn't pass the smell test. What a despicable man.
Update: Brian Leiter has an excellent background piece on Hitchens' genocidal dementia, which has afflicted him for a lot longer than most people realize and is by no means limited to Islamic people.
