Christopher Hitchens leaves The Nation

In the past few weeks […] I have come to realize that the magazine itself takes a side in this argument, and is becoming the voice and the echo chamber of those who truly believe that John Ashcroft is a greater menace than Osama bin Laden. (I too am resolutely opposed to secret imprisonment and terror- hysteria, but not in the same way as I am opposed to those who initiated the aggression, and who are planning future ones.) In these circumstances it seems to me false to continue the association, which is why I have decided to make this “Minority Report” my last one.

For anyone yet unfamiliair with this contrarian,
or the many subjects he writes about, see:
the Christopher Hitchens Web.
