Ledeen, Freedom Booster

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

I’ve only done a cursory reading of Andrew Sullivan’s site as of late, but I get the impression from our former intern Ross Douthat (of whom I’m a big fan) that Michael Ledeen only just recently made some offhand remarks about Iran. Just from reading Ross’s comments, if I were a newcomer to Ledeen I’d have little idea that he’s been the biggest booster of Iran dissidents and the leading truthteller about events in Iran (putting the paper of record to shame more than once) for quite a while now.

That said, I leave the rest to Ledeen–he can handle it quite well himself.
