ZNet Debates: Responding To Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens wrote an essay (roughly 9/20/2001) for an issue of the Nation titled Against Rationalization . On the Nation website on 9/24 Hitchens added a reply (Of Sin, the Left & Islamic Fascism) to some criticisms he had heard of  his initial piece. In the two pieces Hitchens dismisses many critics of Bush’s “war on terrorism” as rationalizing terrorism, among other falsely impugned failings. Here are some replies to Hitchens…
