Hitchens says at around 1 hour 8 minutes in: "I began to identify much more with America and its struggle against theocracy and barbarism and to resent the people who were slandering it for doing so. And who still do." What about one of America's strongest allies in the same region as Iraq Hitch? Namely Saudi Arabia, with its "Islamic absolute monarchy" where women can't even drive a car! We know why the US has propped up and supported such a brutal dictator in Saudi Arabia, its large oil reserves. But Hitchens proclaims the US to have noble goals. How does one as intelligent as Hitchens get around this contradiction, anybody? I must also add that the passage from the book he read about his mother was extremely moving.

I could kick Hitchens ass for not getting his oesophagus and all checked regularly. Given his lifestyle, his age, his father's death of the same cancer - it was very neglecting.

I hate this interviewer's style. Stop interrupting and let him talk! He is quite capable of finishing a thought without your help!

This interviewer is so irritating - his question to Christopher about his mother's death - "Why do you think she reached out to YOU?" What on earth !!! Does anyone else find him a "ponmpous fart"? or is it just me ...

This program was simply awful. The main culprit was the interviewer, who thought that people came to hear him. He dominated the conversation with his own views and interjected himself to the point where Hitchens was more an onlooker than a participant. As for Hitchens, a person whom I've heard before and like, well, I can only say that he had an off-night. After an hour, my state of annoyance was such that I turned it off. My time was wasted.
