About Israel's Next Attack, And The Atlantic

Fallows responds to the notion that the Atlantic as a whole is now a de facto party to the neoconservative and Israeli campaign to initiate a global war with Iran here and here. I hope to post a long and impassioned response to Jeffrey's cover-essay making the Israeli case for war next week. But a small word about the meta-issue. The point of this magazine, as I understand it, is airing real and honest debate about the great issues of our time. I think Jeffrey's piece is a classic example of what should be published under such a philosophy, and am proud that this magazine is pioneering the debate we need to have. We do not, moreover, believe in a collective line. We believe in open discourse. And there is no subject as grave as the one Jeffrey has grappled with or that this country will have to confront in the months and years ahead.

And that is why I intend to rebut his arguments and evidence and worldview as powerfully and effectively as I can soon. And why I am not going to rush in prematurely.
