Tariq Ali vs. Christopher Hitchens

AMY GOODMAN: I want to get your response to a comment made by Richard Perle, former Pentagon advisor, almost exactly a year ago. He made this comment at a conference organized by the American Enterprise Institute.

    RICHARD PERLE: And a year from now, I'll be very surprised if there is not some grand square in Baghdad that is named after President Bush.

AMY GOODMAN: Richard Perle. Tariq Ali?

TARIQ ALI: Well, what can one say? I mean, it's utterly ridiculous. I would suggest, however, that when the foreign occupiers finally are forced to leave Iraq, that a tiny public toilet in the big square in Baghdad is named after Richard Perle in memory of that remark.
