I can't see that these unreferenced bits tell anybody anything aboout Reynolds. I have relocated them here for the moment rather than delete them in case tha contributor wants them. --Bob Burton 04:59, 14 Sep 2006 (EDT)

This, however, ignored many instances where Reynolds did quote left wing journalists and pundits.
Like Gary Kamiya
I have at times, as the war has unfolded, secretly wished for things to go wrong. Wished for the Iraqis to be more nationalistic, to resist longer. Wished for the Arab world to rise up in rage. Wished for all the things we feared would happen. I'm not alone: A number of serious, intelligent, morally sensitive people who oppose the war have told me they have had identical feelings.
and Tom Robbins
Quite probably the worst thing about the inevitable and totally unjustifiable war with Iraq is that there’s no chance the U.S. might lose it. America is a young country, and intellectually, emotionally, and physically, it has been exhibiting all the characteristics of an adolescent bully, a pubescent punk who’s too big for his britches and too strong for his age. Someday, perhaps, we may grow out of our mindless, pimple-faced arrogance, but in the meantime, it might do us a ton of good to have our butts kicked. Unfortunately, like most of the targets we pick on, Iraq is much too weak to give us the thrashing our continuously overbearing behavior deserves.

The interpretation of the comments from Yglesias would make it appear the Reynolds had made a comment and had never been able to back it up. This is, however, a comment he has made many thimes before. Seehere and here. HillBillyYeah 20:36, 14 Sep 2006 (EDT)

Thanks HBY, I'll have a look at this a bit later. I ran out of time last night to finish tidying the page up. --Bob Burton 20:44, 14 Sep 2006 (EDT)
