Dueling Snipe Hunts


Here's some Internet fun, of sorts. Eugene Volokh is asking his readers to unearth specific instances of "journalists, officials, or at least famous people" … "who defend the Iraqi insurgents, or at least justify their actions as being a supposed campaign for self-determination, allegedly justifiable rage at Western misbehavior, and so on." In response, the Crooked Timber kids are asking for equally credentialed commentators who have made "egregious claims that a substantial section of those who opposed the war are, in fact, rooting for the other side." As of 5:20 PDT, with 94 Volokh comments to Timber's 64, seems to me that team Crooked has come up with a much more comprehensive list.
