Cristol fabricated evidence (fake photos) and you think he is reliable?

Reader comment on item: The Liberty Incident: The 1967 Israeli Attack on the U.S. Spy Ship
in response to reader comment: the logic of A. J. Cristol

Submitted by Jeff Davis (United States), Jan 2, 2011 at 20:11

if being a professional historian as you claim and jumping on the Cristol bandwagon as being beyond reproach or criticism. Cristol's dusk jacket photo is a fake as the one in his book, stated as such by the government of Israel's ministry of Defense spokesperson Rachel Ashkenazi as NOT an IDF photograph as Cristoll 'covertly acquired", never explained and identified as an IDF photo.

When anyone manufactures evidence to deliberately deceive, misrepresent, and misdirect in a court of law or academia, the whole work is suspect and in disrepute and deservedly so.

So much for you apologists "standards" of integrity which is nil. Cristol is a fraud. It's no wonder the IDF or the US Congress still refuses to allow any open and honest investigation OF THE ATTACK.

Why connive, lie and deceive for an "accident"?
