If the book was criticizing the DOJ, then Roberts's statement was true at time, and "no friend of ours" meant "no friend of the DOJ". Farah's assuming that "ours" was a reference to the entire Reagan administration or somesuch thing. It'd help to see Roberts's comments in context and to know what the controversy surrounding the book was about. Farah's too over the top about Roberts to be taken seriously though. I bet he hasn't seen either the memos OR the book. More likely, he's just reacting to some news story he read.

Even if true, this does not discount certain red flags that all conservatives should be concerned about.

I don't think there is any doubt Farah took that quote out of context. I think your assessment that Roberts was probably defending the DOJ is likely correct context.
