"Although I do wonder if the session happened in exactly that way."

I'm quite sure there was no such literal session, and probably only one or more sessions vaguely along those lines. I never assumed that there was any reason we were supposed to take a political polemic as a literal narrative; I don't believe there is any such obligation; it's a common literary device, is all.


I ask--how did Berman slide from "The War on Iraq is an antifascist war" to "The Afghans and Iraqis need more help"? There were many on the left who thought that one problem with the "On to Iraq!" policy was that it diverted resources away from the reconstruction of Afghanistan. (Which is a mild way of putting it.)
