I'm discontented with Ali's account of the "resistance to the U.S. occupation in Iraq," and I think he engaged in innuendo and falsified events. That's my opinion.

But the fact remains: did the U.S. and British carry out the mosque and marketplace bombings, or did Iraqi Islamist sectarians, including al-Qaeda in Iraq, which Ali denied existed?

It's not me who has "smeared" Ali, but rather the defense of Ali, to which everyone seems to have risen, ends up, inevitably, smearing me. That says something.

Listen to the part of the interview from about 54:00 to 1:02:00. You'll hear that CC's rendition of what Tariq said was, to put it politely, extremely tendentious.
