At something called antiwar.com, the ineffable Michael Scheuer has a screed entitled — I’m not kidding — “Why Does Norman Podhoretz Hate America?” It purports to be a review of Norman’s latest tour de force, World War IV. Here is a sampling from the former Mr. Anonymous:
And who are the heroes of the story? Why, Podhoretz and the familiar roster of the only real Americans and Israel-firsters, of course: Paul Wolfowitz, R. James Woolsey, Charles Krauthammer, Douglas Feith, Victor Hanson Davis, John R. Bolton, Joseph Lieberman, Richard Perle, Robert Kagan, Max Boot, Steve Emerson, Daniel Pipes, Michael Rubin, Michael Ledeen, Kenneth Adelman, Frank Gaffney, and a few others who have battled so long and hard to ensure that America fights an endless war against Muslims in Israel’s defense. Podhoretz and his chums are the men responsible for the lethal mess America now faces in the Muslim world, and they have also done more than any other group – Hamas and Hezbollah included – to undermine Israel’s long-term security.
Congratulations, Mr. Scheuer. You’ve gone from Anonymous to Repulsive.
