The comments about Richard Falk are unfair. The guy is one of the most
prominent scholars of international law in the world, the article picked
out a few misguided statements he made about 9/11 -- all of which fall
well-short of actually endorsing the conspiracy theories -- and which the
source article itself suggests were distorted by a pro-Israel group to
attack him in his role as the Palestine SR.
