Natalie said I should read Susan Sontag's article in yesterday's Guardian, and in fact I meant to read it yesterday, but never got round to it. This afternoon, I plucked a colleague's G2 section out of the bin to readThe trouble with Sontag's story, by David Aaronovitch. Aaronovitch is a regular columnist at the Guardian, and was initially a liberal hawk, although he seems to have partly recanted. I assume everyone knows who Susan Sontag is. You should probably just read both articles and let them have at each other.
