Re: Novak Scrapes the Bottom of the Nutty Barrel

Right on, David! I was thinking the same thing when I read Novak this morning. Writing, "Only a conspiracy theorist might claim…" allows him to appear as if he's distancing himself from conspiracy theorists while at the same time spreading a conspiracy theory.

Whining about how it's taboo to criticize Israel has been the latest tactic of Israel-bashers (see Walt/ Mearsheimer), because if you criticize their arguments, they just point to it as further evidence of a "criticism-free" zone.
