Antiwar Radio: Peter Hart

Peter Hart, activism director at Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), discusses his article “Is There Really a Goldstone ‘Retraction’?” about the media spin-machine working to wipe any traces of Israeli war crimes in Gaza from the minds of Americans; Richard Goldstone’s minor quibbles with the Goldstone Report‘s conclusions, expressed in his Washington Post op-ed, that amount to questioning the existence of a high-level Israeli official policy of intentionally killing civilians (based on information provided by the Israeli military’s self-investigation); the significant (and seemingly effective) pressure from Israel supporters brought to bear on Goldstone; and the report’s significant evidence of Israeli war crimes that remains unchallenged – including targeting civilian infrastructure and using white phosphorous.
