The idiocy put forward in the name of “anti-interventionism” has reached 
biblical proportions. This week The Nation Magazine published an article 
titled “The State Department’s Wrong-Headed Push for War With Syria” 
that was written by James Carden, a contributor to both The Nation and 
American Conservative. Does that sound a bit odd to you? Not as long as 
you understand that the Red-Brown banner is held aloft at the magazine 
by publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel’s husband, the feckless Stephen F. 
Cohen who is an almost weekly guest on the John Batchelor show on WABC 
AM radio. Indeed, Cohen seems to be interviewed by the rightwing host as 
much as Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice-Chair of the Conference of 
Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations who uses the show to 
promote Netanyahu’s wars on Gaza, banning BDS, and other hot button 
issues of the Israel Lobby.
