Part one of five, with new segments forthcoming each day this week. It’s a testament to the depth of anti-Iraq feeling, I guess, that Pat Buchanan’s apologias for Nazi expansionism dressed up (ironically) as antipathy to “wars of choice” can provoke serious re-examination of WWII, but those are the intellectual facts on the ground right now. This exchange starts slowly but builds to a climax that should make tomorrow’s entry worthwhile; for your companion reading, enjoy Hitchens’s unsparing review of Buchanan’s work in Newsweek if you missed it last month.
