Like Edward Said used to say, the Arabs are endlessly challenged and are expected to justify, prove, and document, over and over and over and....

BTW There's a pretty good editorial up at Al-Ahram (weekly in English) on Sea Island and the GMEI here:


I saw that piece on Larry King, a show I watch infrequently, back in 2001 and I still remember it -- Judith Miller really is that obnoxious. But she came in very well prepared and whipped Dana Sayegh's ass. Sayegh looked sweet and ill-prepared, and Al-Jazeera looked very very bad.

Later, I figured that was what King wanted. In US tv chat-shows, if the host disagrees with a guest, he usually carefully selects another guest who will express those disagreement.
