Smith gives his side
A few days ago I wrote about the troubles W. Thomas Smith Jr., an occasional colleague here at USC, has run into over his reporting from Lebanon.
Smith has now posted his response on his Web site in two parts. It relies heavily on an unedited e-mail from Toni Nissi, general coordinator in Lebanon for the International Lebanese Committee for UN Security Council Resolution 1559 and a further defense by Tom Harb, the group's general secretary. I encourage you to read both parts -- the first laying out the facts as Smith sees them and the second detailing the interaction with other media as this developed.
