Michael Ledeen Double-Header


Sunday's Boston Globe included an interesting piece on the intellectual development of Michael Ledeen, the Iran-contra veteran and neoconservative pundit. It also published a good article by Laura Rozen on Ledeen's favorite cause, the overthrow of the Iranian regime. Among other things, Rozen's report contrasts Ledeen's approach to Iran with that of the "strategic nonviolence movement" associated with Peter Ackerman, Jack DuVall, and former Reason interviewee Gene Sharp.
