Hitchens, in fine form, says it ain't who Robert Wright thinks created him:

It takes a true intellectual to survey this appalling picture and to say, as Wright does, that we invite attacks on our off-duty soldiers because "the hawkish war-on-terrorism strategy--a global anti-jihad that creates nonstop imagery of Americans killing Muslims--is so dubious." Dubious? The only thing dubious here is his command of language. When did the U.S. Army ever do what the jihadists do every day: deliberately murder Muslim civilians and brag on video about the fact? For shame. The slippery slope--actually the slimy slope--is the one down which Wright is skidding.
