Max Boot Responds

My column today was about General Petraeus and Israel, and in it I was critical of Max Boot’s defense of what I take to be the general’s very misguided comments about Israel. Max has a thoughtful response at Contentions, and, while disagreeing, I appreciate his kind words about the issues on which we don’t disagree. As I said in my column, I admire both Gen. Petraeus and Max. I just think they’re wrong on this one. But I’ve had my say and I’ll leave it at that.
