A wretched piece of writing. Suspect in its motivations, inchoate in its conclusions, incoherent in its diction--that it should come from a writer for The Nation who had once been a New York Times reporter in that part of the world is astonishing, to say the least. While a columnist's opinions are her own, the editors do share responsibility for the rampant stylistic and logical confusions of the article.
