Irving Part 1

There may not be a part 2. David Irving is in custody on Austria on a long-standing arrest warrant for denying that the Holocaust occurred. A High Court judge in London ruled that Irving has earned this label, not least for having manipulated historical documents to bolster his "argument." Now, our open ended post is prompted by wondering whether Christopher Hitchens will see the opportunity for a return trip to his weird mid 1990s defences of Irving -- a way station between his War on Mother Teresa and his War on People Not In Power in the US. A specific point of interest is the subject matter of another unfinished post of ours, about Hitch's weird ambiguousness on the Israel issue.
