Hari interviews Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens: In enemy territory

Its a good summary of a journey many on the Left have made in recent years.

Its also an indication of the quality of The Independent's editorial judgment. It has been steadfastly opposed to Bush and the war and is the prime publisher of Robert Fisk and yet can publish pieces such as this interview and Hari is one of their regular writers. Compare that to what The Listener was like under Findlay MacDonald.

Those that cried out the loudest about dissent being crushed did not quite see the irony.
