US: Fire Falk over Claims of US Cover-Up of 9/11
Tuesday, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice called on the UN to fire Richard Falk, a UN human rights official who has been harshly critical of Israel. The U.S. wants Falk fired over comments he made regarding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Falk wrote in a blog this month that there was an “apparent cover-up” by U.S. authorities of facts about the attacks.
