Khalidi And The PLO

Martin Kramer, a passionate neocon, concludes:

Khalidi later broke with Arafat, but like him, he remains a bundle of ambiguities and incongruities, many of them deliberately constructed. He's much too elusive for any passing journalist to pin down. Rashid Khalidi becomes what people wish him to be.

More information from Ron Kampeas. And a rebuttal of Joe Klein's quick counter here. Josh Marshall is disgusted by how McCain has deployed the faint Obama connection. I have received countless emails from many students of Khalidi's who find the demonization of him as absurd as it is abhorrent. Somewhere in all this is the truth. But the complexities of a scholar's thought and record are not best explored in the heat of a campaign's final days.
