A defence of Victor Bout
Via my site meter, I see that I have a critic, who claims that I have unfairly maligned the Russian arms trader, Victor Bout. I have never been called a “repulsive insect” before, though an ex-girlfriend’s mother did once comment that I reminded her of a cockroach.
The proprietor of the website linked above is right to say that I am not a Victor Bout expert, and that I haven’t personally investigated him. Nevertheless, I find the reporting that others have done on the subject credible, so I’m not quite ready yet to apologize to Mr. Bout. Readers are invited to click through the link to judge for themselves.
