The Protesters Were Right

Christopher Hitchens notes all the things that the anti-war crowd was right about in his latest Slate article.

It's possible that their attendance figures for the 4/12 peace extravaganza will be down a bit, what with the fall of Baghdad and all. But Hitch plans to be there:

We should celebrate our common ground as well as the gorgeous mosaic of our diversity. The next mass mobilization called by International ANSWER and the stop-the-war coalition is only a few days away. I already have my calendar ringed for the date. This time, I am really going to be there. It is not a time to keep silent. Let our voices be heard. All of this has been done in my name, and I feel like bearing witness.
