From Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter’s December 7 lecture: The 2,000 American dead are an embarrassment. They are transported to their graves in the dark. Funerals are unobtrusive, out of harm’s way. The mutilated rot in their beds, some for the rest of their lives. So the dead and the mutilated both rot, in different kinds of graves. (The British playwright won the 2005 Nobel Prize in Literature.)
The entire lecture can be seen and read at http://nobelprize.org/. It presents a view of American foreign policy not likely to get much attention in the mainstream press or airplay on Faux News.
