Aaron Klein Hides Behind More Anonymous Sources
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The unverifiable hits just keep coming for WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein.

Klein's May 23 WND article claims that "Dennis Ross, Obama's Middle East envoy, has exchanged messages the past few weeks between Israel and the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad" with the purported aim on "an Israeli surrender of the strategic Golan Heights." Klein cites only anonymous and purportedly "informed Israeli and Arab officials" to back up his claim.

This is just the latest in a long line of articles -- 31 in the first four months of 2011 alone -- in which Klein cited anonymous, unverifiable sources in support of major claims. At least one of those claims proved to be utterly false, which raises questions about the reliability of his sources.
