Depleting the Uranium Libel

When it comes to bashing Israel, one of the media's biggest zealots is Robert Fiske of the UK's Independent newspaper. A perfect match if there ever was one.

Fiske brought blood libels into the 21st century by writing this piece accusing Israel of using depleted uranium shells in its Lebanon war last summer.

A UN investigation has now debunked this falsehood as you can read here.

When might we expect Fiske and/or the Independent to publish a retraction ... an apology ... or even to report these findings?

Don't hold your breath!
It will take longer to deplete uranium.
