When a junior polemicist teamed up with a lecturer from Harvard to put forth the proposition that France was America’s oldest enemy, some anti-French websites trumpeted the concept and applauded the premise of this upcoming book. Our Oldest Enemy (DoubleDay, Random House) written by Miller and Molesky has already been featured in a previous editorial.
To complete every Anti-French NeoCon’s library, it will soon be necessary to pre-order another item, this one written by Kenneth Timmerman under the catchy title: The French Betrayal of America (Crown Publishing Group, Random House).
Kenneth Timmerman is a senior writer for Insight Magazine a sister publication of the Washington Times owned by self-proclaimed Messiah Sun Myung Moon, a Bush family supporter. Timmerman, who has also written for the Wall Street Journal and Newsweek, is well known for his passionate pieces on China, the Middle East, Islam, international terrorism, Iraq and Jesse Jackson.
Kenneth Timmerman is also known for collaborating with JINSA, the Middle East Defence News, and the Foundation for Democracy in Iraq. Timmeran also briefly sat on the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives. His views can safely be categorized as neo-conservative hegemonist.
In 2000, Kenneth Timmerman failed to secure the Republican primary in Maryland in his bid to become a U.S. Senator. Two years later, Timmerman published an article claiming there were links between Iraq and the Oklahoma City Bombing.
Master spin doctor for the neo-conservative movement, it comes as no surprise that Timmerman claims to have exposed a number of links between the French government and Saddam Hussein that would explain France’s anti-war stance.
