For the Palestinian point of view, the NYT asked…Benny Morris. Today, the NYT asked David Grossman to represent the Israeli point of view. For the Palestinian point of view, the NYT asked…David Grossman.” —The Angry Arab News Service/وكالة أنباء العربي الغاضب: Balance on the op-ed page of the NYT (via robot-heart-politics)
“That night, on 9/11, Rumsfeld came over and the others, and the president finally got back, and we had a meeting. And Rumsfeld said, You know, we’ve got to do Iraq, and everyone looked at him—at least I looked at him and Powell looked at him—like, What the hell are you talking about? And he said—I’ll never forget this—There just aren’t enough targets in Afghanistan. We need to bomb something else to prove that we’re, you know, big and strong and not going to be pushed around by these kind of attacks.” —
Richard Clarke, chief White House counterterrorism adviser. Vanity Fair Magazine.
