The antidote is in
For all of you who were unfortunate enough to be exposed to Monsieur Debray in yesterday's NYT, here is your antidote courtesy of Lileks. You really need to read the entire bleat, but if you're pressed for time, just keep in mind this bit of info about Debray that the Times somehow forgot to mention. He is an avowed Communist, supporter of Fidel Castro, was sentenced to 30 years in a Bolivian jail (unfortunately, he was let go after just three years), and he defended Milosevic in the early 90's.
Was the Times unaware of Debray's past, did they know and forget or did they realize a more accurate description might explain his virulent anti-Americanism? You decide.
