Paul Bucha, a public figure and foreign policy adviser to a presidential candidate and Senator from Illinois, called author Naomi Klein a "whackjob" during a recent tour of Pennsylvania college campuses. As he discussed the situation in Iraq this key adviser mentioned several facts about Iraq and its invasion and occupation which resonated with anyone who has read Klein's book "The Shock Doctrine." He mentioned how we are attempting to remake Iraq in our own image along with other references which match Klein's theory.
I asked him if this meant he advocated the position Naomi Klein took and whether the Senator also did. He denied that which seemed strange since he'd just said some of the very same things she wrote in her book. After the event he told me that Naomi Klein is a "whackjob."
