And the one issue on which Egypts Muslim militants and Egypts militarists seem to agree is that the Americans cannot be trustedI hate it when Buchanan says something right. Unfortunately for him, it does not make up for the wrong things he says.
Let me respectfully presume to disagree. I cannot remember when Pat Buchanan put a foot down wrong. Yes, I am aware of the allegations concerning his anti-Semitism etc. but I think they mischaracterize the man.
Buchanan asks us discomforting questions, like what did we gain from World War II? Why are we supporting Israel?
These can be read as anti-Semitic or they can be read simply as contrarian points of view. Buchanan is a paleo conservatives but that does not mean he is an anti-Semite.
From the standpoint of 20 years since he ran for president and made that wonderful speech to the Republican convention which caused such thin lipped smiles among the Republican elites, Buchanan has been proved right on immigration, right on trade, right on our economic policies, and right on his assessments of demographic trends.
Incidentally, he was right on George HW Bush and he was right on George W Bush.
