Christopher Hitchens, unlike most political commentators, could write and think clearly when he wanted. Most of the hacks and trolls talking politics are hardly more literate or logical than the mobs they incite. He may have gone bonkers for Bush and the Iraqi adventure, but he did offer something by way of an apology before he died. He noted the generals who sent the U.S. Army to Iraq were just about as incompetent as those who butchered an entire generation of young men in the trenches of WWI. He wasn’t all neo-Fascist in the end. RIP.
