Christopher Hitchens (born April 13, 1949) is an English-American author, journalist and literary critic. Currently living in Washington, D.C., he has been a columnist at Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, World Affairs, The Nation, Slate, Free Inquiry, and a variety of other media outlets. Hitchens is also a political observer, whose best-selling books — the latest being God Is Not Great — have made him a staple of talk shows and lecture circuits.

In May 2008, Hitchens voluntarily experienced waterboarding, concluding “if waterboarding does not constitute torture, then there is no such thing as torture”.
