Moreover, he opined that the U.S. decision to bury bin Laden’s body in Davy Jones’s locker was provoking and angering Muslims, a definite no-no in the rarefied world of pontificating Marxist academics.
The crimes of the dead al-Qaeda leader who destroyed the World Trade Center were insignificant compared to those committed by President George W. Bush, Chomsky wrote. “We might ask how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at his compound, assassinated him and dumped his body in the Atlantic.”
“Uncontroversially, his crimes vastly exceed bin Laden’s, and he is not a ‘suspect’ but uncontroversially the ‘decider’ who gave the orders to commit the ‘supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole’ [quoting the Nuremberg Tribunal] for which Nazi criminals were hanged: the hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of refugees, destruction of much of the country, the bitter sectarian conflict that has now spread to the rest of the region.”
Maybe the idea that Bush was worse than bin Laden was considered uncontroversial at a meeting of one of the Marxist groups to which the ayatollah of the left belongs. One of theses associations, known as the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, incidentally, is currently campaigning for a Nobel Peace Prize for Stalinist songbird Pete Seeger.
It’s just a matter of time before CCDS or another radical group starts a petition to have Chomsky awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
