I have read many articles by Mr. Ignatieff that were published in the New York Times Magazine.
My low opinion of Mr. Ignatieff was formed by reading his own words, in long, in-depth stories. He helped make the case for pre-emptive invasion, he supports the use of torture, he supports overthrowing governments to install new regimes. This comes from the man's own words.
Some links were posted in comments in this thread, but they are only a small sample of what I've read.
Again: my judgement of this man was formed by reading his own words. Got it? Thanks.
Update: A reader alerts me that on a pro-Ignatieff blog, I am listed, along with a bunch of other people, as a "Rae Liberal". Do these people bother to read before they write? (Silly question, I know.) Earth to trolls: I am not a "Rae Liberal". I am not a Liberal at all!
Upperdate: Go look up the definition of "smear campaign". You will find it does not mention quoting the person's own published, well-chosen words.
