Greg Palast disagrees with Thomas Friedman

by Yule Heibel on September 20, 2003

Via AlterNet, this article by Greg Palast, Tragedy in New York: French Fried Friedman:

And how DARE Friedman say that France doesn’t care about the War on Terror. France declared war on Osama and his madmen years before September 11 got Bush to change from the view of his advisor, Robert Oakley, that we shouldn’t have a “fixation” on getting rid of bin Laden. French intelligence warned Bush to stop playing footsie with the Taliban, to stop coddling the Saudi Islamic dictatorship, to stop running interference for the bin Laden family. But would Little George listen? Noooo.

It’s the way of the American conservative: point at everyone except yourself.
