Friedman, Krugman and Anti-Semitism
I was going to make this point, but Atrios beat me to it. As I read the NYT op-eds yesterday, I was struck by how Tom Friedman referred to Mahatir's comments against Jews and then went on to try to understand why he would say such things. That sounds a lot like what Krugman did a few weeks ago and was attacked for. But of course Tom Friedman supported the Iraq war, so no such condemnation will be coming his way.
