Thomas Friedman, the idiot savant is at it again. Today, in the New York Times, in a column called “Intercepting Iran’s Take on America,” he has written a “satirical” column on what the leaders of Iran must be thinking about us, including:
First, 9/11 has made America afraid and therefore stupid.
It is, I believe, at least the second time he has voiced regret over the 9/11 induced “stupidity” of America’s body politic. Hmmm…interesting. As I recall, he was one of those who was rooting for the war in Iraq, saying we had to act “a little bit crazy,” etc. to root out the terrorists. When it comes to stupidity, he should speak for himself only. I won’t say he’s as bad as David Brooks who frequently sounds as if he just arrived from Mars, but he is remarkably shallow and glib. Basically a journalistic shill for the powers that be…for the moment.
