[Marxism] Help on Hitchens (or Ignatieff) on railroad and indian genocide

Can any one help me here?

Some time ago, either Hitchens or Ignatieff wrote something to the 
effect that -- and I paraphrase -- yes there had been a US genocide 
of the Indians but one should also keep in mind that we had brought 
the railroad to the West. I think to remember that he (Hitchens) was 
responding to either Zinn, Said or Chomsky.

Sorry for my vagueness. Does this ring a bell?
