Links at last

The Telegraph has updated its books pages. Nicholas Blincoe (quite the weirdest review I've had N Cohen). Anthony Daniels (not so sure about this N Cohen).

Gosh, the Blincoe one is really rather good - he absolutely nails the relationship between Decentism and ur-fascism. He only makes one mistake:

"Cohen spoke to a few enthusiastic Kurdish nationalists, but found only one self-proclaimed Iraqi who supported the war. Just one"

Nick actually found two (Kanan Makiya and Ahmed Chalabi) but he only mentions one of them in his book.

I expect Nick has dismissed Blincoe as 'weird' because his review is entirely hostile and entirely on the mark, and it's easier to dismiss your critics as loony or obsessive (cf Geras) than to pay attention to their arguments.

There's a short and damning review in this week's Times Literary Supplement, by Robert Potts, which observes that Chalabi has been airbrushed from the book.
