"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception."
--- Mark Twain, The Mysterious Stranger, 1916, Ch.9

David Rohde, Srebrenica and the New Justice
by Jared Israel (7-24-00)
The above is the latest in an ongoing battle with David Rohde from the 'NY Times.' Remember Rohde? He wrote the original Srebrenica massacre story when he was a lowly Christian Science Monitor reporter back in 1995; in return for making loud (if unsubstantiated) accusations against the Bosnian Serbs he landed a perch at the 'NY Times' from which he issues Srebrenica updates whenever NATO wishes to prepare public opinion for some new attack on Yugoslavia.

The dispute with Rohde began when we published the article Why has the War Crimes Tribunal suppressed testimony about Srebrenica? by Max Sinclair and Jared Israel.

David Rohde sent an email to Prof. Drasko Jovanovic, with whom he was corresponding about Srebrenica. In the email he answered Sinclair and Israel.

Jovanovic forwarded Rohde's email to Emperor's Clothes. It was answered by Sinclair and Israel. Prof. Jovanovic also sent E-C a short memoir concerning his experience as a boy in Nazi occupied Yugoslavia; a real experience with genocide, by way of contrast with the make-believe stuff David Rohde peddles. Rohde then took his dispute with us to the pages of the 'NY Times,' omitting nothing other than our actual views. Jared Israel replied to Rohde's 'Times' piece; so did Prof. Jovanovic. Jovanovic's answer is entitled 'Fare well Mr. Rohde. Continue making your living by telling the Srebrenica story.'

Now we shall try to get an answer to Rohde onto the pages of the 'NY Times.' We shall see...
