Hitchens on Cindy Sheehan

Perhaps we're taking such an interest in this drama becuase of the principles it touches on. Christopher Hitchens is taking on claims of moral authority. Money quote:

Sheehan has obviously taken a short course in the Michael Moore/Ramsey Clark school of Iraq analysis and has not succeeded in making it one atom more elegant or persuasive.

I distrust anyone who claims to speak for the fallen, and I distrust even more the hysterical noncombatants who exploit the grief of those who have to bury them.
