"Could It Be…"
New Republic editor in chief Martin Peretz offers us a preview of the remix:
By the way, next week or the week after, we are running an article by Oren and Yossi Klein Halevi on Iran’s nuclear capacity, and what should be done about it. We already know what Clinton thinks should be done: wear a yellow ribbon.
Gee, what could Oren and Halevi possibly propose in the pages of The New Republic? Will it be that Israel should bomb with America’s diplomatic support, or that America should bomb ourselves? I expect a “ruthlessly serious” proposal one way or the other. Meanwhile, why are hawkish American magazines literally outsourcing their Iran coverage to Israeli pundits? It’s like Pat Buchanan is secretly controlling their editors’ minds or something.
