Even Kessler Agrees Klein's Smear Was Unfair
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We've previously noted Aaron Klein's attempt to smear Chas Freeman, the now-former nominee head the National Intelligence Council, by claiming he has "business ties to Osama bin Laden's family." Now we've gotten support for our contention from a most unlikely source.

From Ronald Kessler's March 11 Newsmax column otherwise critical of Freeman:

To be sure, a few of the criticisms leveled against Freeman were unfair.

The fact that Freeman had business dealings with a construction firm owned by Osama bin Laden’s family was a non sequitur. Years before bin Laden began attacking American interests, his family severed ties with him when Saudi Arabia expelled him and confiscated his assets.

Klein, of course, never botherred to report that part of it, all the better to smear Freeman.
