Neo-conservatives and Walid Jumblat: neo-conservatives (especially Charles Krauthhammer and Christopher Hitchens) have not stopped quoting the one interview that Walid Jumblat gave to David Ignatius of the Washington Post after the death of his friend/patron Rafiq Hariri in which he claimed that he was inspired by Bush's wars, although he later repeatedly and regularly repudiated that one interview. Yesterday, in a new interview with AlJazeera, this sectarian feudal warlord also said that he gloated when he saw footage of the planes slamming into World Trade Center on Sep. 11. Do you think that Hitchens will mention that to his audience when he relies on Walid Jumblat to falsely claim that Arabs are cheering Bush in the region?
