“I consider him and Alan Dershowitz” – the two men Mr. Greenwald, 47, will face at Friday’s Munk Debates – “two of the most pernicious human beings on the planet. I find them morally offensive. There’s an element of hypocrisy to being in the same room with them, treating them as if I have outward respect, because I don’t.”
Mr. Greenwald says his Toronto debate opponents, Mr. Dershowitz and Gen. Hayden, have both suggested that they believe he belongs in jail, alongside Mr. Snowden. It should make for some frostiness this weekend, and Mr. Greenwald shakes his head a bit at what his life has become.
Not long ago, he told Ms. Poitras he was looking forward to things getting “back to normal.”
Again the dark, fast laugh.
