An Exemplar of Moral Uprightness and Rational Thought

Let us be clear about it: the U.S. role in international medical and family-planning policy, its opposition to contraception and abortion, and its mishandling of the issue of AIDS--it's criminally irresponsible and will lead to the deaths of many millions of people. George Bush should be indicted for mass murder because of his policies on AIDS. As should the Pope--both this one and the previous ones.
-Fred Halliday

He would do well to remember his attempt at nuance later in the interview: "The Left does not have a monopoly on truth or analysis or morality."
