Ah. I see that the intellectual de-gentrification of the New Republic proceeds rapidly.
I last noted big Bob Woodward fan David Greenberg joining in the National Review Yahoos' attack on left-wing peacenik professors who don't teach military history properly, including the hard-working and well-regarded Steve Zdatny of West Virginia University, who responded thus:
Steven Zdatny: I object to [National Review's] implication that I am personally suckering students in to a popular course on war and then filling them up with socialist-feminist-fashion propaganda, instead of blood and guts.... [W]e have just finished reading Ernst Junger’s Storm of Steel, discussing... Verdun, and seeing... "Westfront 1918." Next... John Keegan’s chapter on the Battle of the Somme in his brilliant military history The Face of Battle. I believe that [National Review's] Mr. Miller would like those classes, filled with trenches, generals, and Big Berthas. If he had bothered... to check... he would have discovered that the class fit... his own conception of what... [it] should look like. Mr. Miller, however, like a soldier dispatching wounded enemies on the field, seems to have more ardor than integrity...
Back then Greenberg was lamenting that he could not list the battles fought by Stonewall Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley campaign of 1862 in order (Kernstown, McDowell, Front Royal, Winchester, Cross Keys, Port Republic).
Now he is calling Jimmy Carter an anti-semite:
Open University: Alan [Wolfe did not] persuade me that calling Israel's most strident critics anti-Semitic is censorship or censorious or even such a bad thing. Mind you, it should be done with care and precision.... [S]ome those who employ the anti-Semitic epithet... are seeking to shake the scales from the eyes of naifs who imagine that likening Israel to Nazi Germany or to apartheid South Africa... might somehow be done in good faith and a spirit of honest intellectual exchange...
I don't know whether Jimmy Carter is correct in likening the regime that Ariel Sharon's settlements have created on the West Bank (not, notice Israel proper) to the apartheid one. I do know that Jimmy Carter is writing in good faith, that he is not an anti-semite, and that he is a friend to Israel.
By contrast, David Greenberg--and all the others who resist calls for the evacuation of Israeli settlers from the West Bank--well, you can all them many things, but you can't call them friends of Israel. Every day the settlers remain on the hilltops Sharon settled them on is a day that Israel grows weaker and less secure.
 For the full Woodward treatment, read his The Agenda (which Greenberg worked on), then read his Maestro, contemplate how one and the same person could use the Third Person Omniscient to write both contradictory accounts of the making of Clinton economic policy without ever breathing a hint that the same author wrote a book with an opposed message, and collapse to the floor in helpless laughter.
