  3. @GeorgeMonbiot True that Edward Herman is a liar? True that he's comparable to Holocaust deniers?

  5. @GeorgeMonbiot But you wrote "True" in response to alleged lies in material here http://tiny.cc/gku2s that has nothing to do with us.

    @GeorgeMonbiot No, that was a later Tweet. You also wrote 'True' three Tweets earlier - take a look. Do you stand by that?

  8. @medialens: I believe that Herman got it wrong in some important respects. Do you stand by your support of his position?

  9. @GeorgeMonbiot Herman, say @medialens, "perfectly entitled" to deny 8,000 Bosniak victims at Srebrenica. Even though their bodies now found!

  10. @GeorgeMonbiot We don't say that, George, but you retweeted it. Have you actually read the little that we've written on this?

  11. @medialens @GeorgeMonbiot Seriously George, regurgitating the words of Iraq apologist and LM helper Kamm? The man has no credibility.

  14. @medialens: Yes: "the 8,000 figure is a political construct and eminently challengeable ... that they are perfectly entitled to do."

  18. @GeorgeMonbiot @medialens Defending someone's right to challenge != agreeing. UN report & others also (maybe wrongly?) challenged the count.

  19. So, @medialens, do you still stand by your claim that Herman is "perfectly entitled" to say that 8,000 people not killed?

  20. @GeorgeMonbiot We're saying +everyone+ is entitled to debate facts. Who are we, or you, to say they are not? Do you possess Absolute Truth?

    @GeorgeMonbiot Herman agrees people were massacred and he debates the numbers. Please explain, George - why is he not entitled to do that?

  21. @medialens: would you say that David Irving is "entitled" to question whether 6m Jews were killed by the Nazis?

  22. @GeorgeMonbiot We reject Holocaust denial because of extreme racism/hatred driving it. Presumably you don't believe that's Herman's motive!

  24. @medialens allusions to Nazis happen b/c Monbiot and his ilk have trouble navigating nuances and history w/o goodies vs baddies narrative.
