Hitchens on Blumenthal

Christopher Hitchens has a great review of former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal‘s new book, The Clinton Wars, in The Atlantic. It’s especially interesting given the history between Hitchens and Blumenthal, who were once friends until Hitchens chose to testify to Ken Starr’s impeachment inquiry that Blumenthal had testified falsely in a sworn deposition to that inquiry. Ever since, the two have warred in public and in private. That gives Hitchens’ review a sharp edge and a new angle that an uninvolved observer couldn’t have.
