I am sometimes contacted about my correspondence with Chomsky (1989-1995), which is summarized in detail in Looking for the Enemy. There is another summary in The Transparent Conspiracy in the chapter titled "Chomsky and Newman -- The False Debate." Obviously, we disagreed on the question of whether JFK had decided to withdraw from Vietnam, but I think I won the debate. We also disagree on 9/11, but I still have great respect for him and agree with him on many other issues. In 2014 I was able to get him together with Paul Craig Roberts on OpEdNews.com (see here, here and here ). My latest (and I hope final!) word on the Vietnam withdrawal issue is here.
