I was quite prepared for the bedwetters of the left to whine about the “unseemliness” of Americans celebrating–joyfully, out in public!–our killing of Bin Laden, and even that Michael Moore would traffic in fresh conspiracy theories, but I was unprepared for Noam Chomsky’s reaction, which goes beyond even an execrable moral equivalence and straight on to 9/11 “trutherism” and more:
We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George W. Bush’s compound, assassinated him, and dumped his body in the Atlantic. Uncontroversially, his crimes vastly exceed bin Laden’s. . .
There’s much more like this in the piece, if you have have a high threshold for disgust.
JOHN adds: In my opinion, Noam Chomsky is insane. He constructs sentences and paragraphs that have the syntax of logical argument, but are divorced from any connection with reality.
