All you wanted to know on the Battle of Algiers. (You have to get a 1 day pass at Salon, and see a one page commercial).

The paintings of Johannes Vermeer.
Former Treasury Secretary (who was a member of Bush’s security council) never saw any evidence of Iraqi WMDs.

Pentagon auditors altered files. And poor people get arrested for shop lifting an apple.
Benny Morris is a champion of Ethnic Cleansing. And he is considered to be on the left of the Israeli academic establishment. (thanks Tami).
