Correction! Fisk not banned from the US and other Middle Eastern news

The following interview is of considerable interest: Robert Fisk has not been banned in the US, as many people including myself inferred from a Santa Fe New Mexican article. He had the wrong passport. Fisk believes the Hariri investigation is being done energetically and on the level. My comment: an honest investigation would be very helpful in helping to prevent a regional conflict. He discounted the recent attack on a journalist as having been because of her anti-Syrian sympathies. He says that extrapolation of what he has seen suggests that there have been 150,000 civilian deaths in Iraq since the invasion. Honest numbers are not available because the US is controlling access. "Al-Jazeera is banned... just as it was under Saddam."
