Seems more like a political take rather than historical. The word "traitor" triggers me in a historical context.

Mustafa Kemal was an extreme pragmatist. If this is real, to me, this is an attempt to exploit Brit. There is no way he would allow any one but the Ottomans (Turks) rule Anatolia.

Ataturk's genius and achievements are not up to discussion. People are free to slander him but frankly I think this is inane.

Ataturk certainly achieved a lot, but I don't think he should be above criticism.

No one is above criticism but that’s not what I said. As a Turk, however, I can not find much to criticize him. I am slightly biased.

Yes, from a Turkish POV, Ataturk certainly deserves praise. But we should also examine some of the more controversial aspects of him and of the Turkish War of Independence, namely the expulsions of Armenians and Greeks.

Armenians were long gone when he was in power. What expulsion are you talking about in specific?
