The former evidenced by his way of expressing himself (or mostly the lack of thereof) and his actions throughout the whole story. However, that statement, while having a slight degree of veracity, doesn't really define Kiritsugu's character. He has experienced many things that have shaped his mindset, so calling him "soulless" denies all of the development he has gone through.
