Aaron Klein's Anonymous Sources Get Another Story Wrong
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Another anonymously sourced article by WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein has bitten the dust.

Last week, Klein granted anonymity to terrorists by quoting anonymous "Hamas leaders" as denying that an agreement has been reached for the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was captured in 2006 by Palestinian militants during a raid on his military outpost.

Guess what: There was a deal to release Shalit, and he has been released.

Any chance Klein will issue a printed correction for the false claims of his anonymous and unverifiable sources? Don't count on it.

This is at least the second time this year that an anonymously sourced Klein article has been proven false. In January, Klein cited a senior PA official" to claim that "The Obama administration told the Palestinian Authority it will not veto an upcoming United Nations resolution condemning all Jewish construction in the West Bank and eastern sections of Jerusalem." In fact, the U.S. did veto that resolution.
