Aaron Klein Anonymous Source Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Sept. 5 WorldNetDaily article by Aaron Klein credits anonymous "informed Israeli officials" with a claim that "The Obama administration is applying intense pressure on Israel to issue an apology for the 2010 raid of a Hamas-supporting flotilla attempting to enter the Gaza Strip."

As is common practice for Klein's anonymously sourced articles, there is no on-the-record confirmation of the anonymous sources' claims, or is any reason given as to why anyone should trust what Klein's "informed Israeli officials" have to say.

Further, Klein's anonymously sourced assertion appears to contradict previous statements by the Obama adsministration that the flotilla was damaging to the long-term security of Israel. But it wouldn't be the first time Klein has hidden behind anonymous sources to hurl false claims against Obama.
