"American Exceptionalism," from the Left

Howard Zinn, ranting from the Left, assembles a hodge-podge of non-sequiturs, false premises, and excluded middles in his attack on American exceptionalism ("The Power and the Glory," Boston Review). Or is it an attack on American self-defense, religion, and G.W. Bush? It's all of the above, premised on the notion that because America isn't perfect it must be evil and resisted by the rest of the world. Same to you, Howard.
