I’ve just published my first piece in Truthout, which is a comprehensive account of the Dirar Abusisi extraordinary rendition. This is the first account of its kind published anywhere outside the Ukraine (there have been previous earlier accounts by AP, the NY Times, and Der Spiegel which were less comprehensive and did not cover major elements of the story which may not have been known to the reporters).
As this is my first piece for Truthout, I hope you’ll read it, recommend it to friends, put it out via social networks, and comment freely in the threads. Thanks to Max Ajl, who offered me the name of the editor he’s worked with there.
Tomorrow, Josh Breiner will publish an interview he did with me for Walla, the Israeli online news portal. Link to follow…
UPDATE: For you Hebrew speakers, here it is. Please add a few positive comments in the Talkbacks if you can. So far I’ve been called mentally ill, and compared in my “love” for Israel to Adolph Hitler’s.
A friend posted a link to this interview at the far-right Rotter forum and this comment is the highest praise I could imagine, especially coming from someone who probably dislikes my politics intensely:
Just between us, we all rely on him to find out what’s hidden behind these gags.
And that, in a nutshell, is why I do this.
