  5. Thank you, Gareth Porter, for taking the time and trouble to challenge a fact-finder on such an important issue that could lead to yet another misguided war. Peace activists must continue to be vigilant and dispute the twisting of reality that occurs in the mainstream press to support a militaristic agenda.
