a night with hitch

Michael Totten's night on the turps in DC with Christopher Hitchens and some Iraqis.

At one point, apropos of something I can’t remember, Ahman said to me: “I can tell you in one sentence how my country feels about your country.”

“Really?” I said. “Can you really boil it down to one sentence?”

“Yes,” he said. “And it is this: Thank you for coming, now please leave and take us with you.

I laughed because it seemed totally contradictory and totally right.
