I admit that oftentimes I detest Anderson Cooper, the CNN evening star, especially when he is in full blown ambulance chasing mode. But, if you have been searching the channels the past few days to listen in on the debate about Syria, you have found a lot of foolishness, except on Anderson's show. He has had Fouad Ajami on every night and Ajami knows more about the region than almost anyone. Kudos to Cooper for keeping this sage on the airwaves.
