Breaking news — read all about it in the link above.

Basically, the USHM has pulled its own report about the conflict in Syria because the report did not bow low enough to the Jews.

Begin Quote from September 17th New York Times article:

That characterization, echoed by other critics, incorrectly describes the report, according to several academics and Syria-watchers. They also said the study’s removal sets a troubling precedent for suppressing independent research.

“It’s absolutely shocking that they would pull a report simply because their supporters didn’t like the conclusions, which is the only way to interpret what they did,” said Marc Lynch, an international affairs professor at George Washington University and one of several experts interviewed by the study’s authors.

If anybody archived the report and has a link to it, I would like to read about it in the comment section of this blog post.
