How I love that cantankerous atheist, controversialist and hopelessly misguided Iraq war apologist Christopher Hitchens. The guy is terrifyingly well-read and smart, and his cojones are beyond question. I have never seen somebody voluntarily undergo waterboarding before, which is jaw-dropping, but to publicly adjust one's views after such an experience is perhaps even more courageous.
Here he is on a panel with 4 Christian apologist opponents and a biased chair. Heroic.
