Christopher Hitchens on getting attacked in Beirut

March 30, 2009

Noted author Christopher Hitchens in Vanity Fair on his well-publicized pummeling by fascist Islamists on his recent trip to Beirut. He was also recently on the panel of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, alongside Salman Rushdie and…Mos Def. Whichever side of the issues you fall on, the panel was worth watching.

    Hitchens is such a beautiful asshole

    And he was right on to take it to Mos Def, whose comments were clearly meant to undermine the idea that the Taliban and Al-Qaeda are dangerous.

      Any conversation that includes Hitchens, Salman Rushdie and Mos Def is worth listening to, however high Mos Def appears to be at the time. (And I don’t know if Hitchens was technically drunk but the constant sipping of the Scotch may have had an effect.)
