Hey, Hitch, why don't you debate Gen. Odom?

By most accounts, Christopher Hitchens got beat badly in his debate over Iraq with unseemly blowhard M.P. Gorgeous George Galloway. But Hitch is convinced he actually won. So, instead of debating a clown like Galloway, why doesn't Hitch pick on somebody who actually knows what he's talking about? For example, retired general William E. Odom, who was director of the National Security Administration under Reagan and Zbigniew Brzezinski's military intelligence adviser under Carter. Here's what Odom just said about Hitchens' beloved Iraq Attaq:

The invasion of Iraq was the “greatest strategic disaster in United States history,” a retired Army general said yesterday, strengthening an effort in Congress to force an American withdrawal beginning next year. Retired Army Lt. Gen. William Odom, a Vietnam veteran, said the invasion of Iraq alienated America's Middle East allies, making it harder to prosecute a war against terrorists.
