Steve Coll’s recent post on my dialogue with Abu Walid al Masri
Last week Steve Coll wrote a small piece on his Think Tank blog about my dialogue with Abu Walid al Masri.
According to him, my hair colour was apparently a determining factor in Abu Walid’s decision to talk to me.
He also took it upon himself to invite his readers to translate the remaining letters on my blog without so much as contacting me.
For the record, I found his post to be demeaning to me as a female researcher in this field and extremely unprofessional.
UPDATE: It has come to my attention that Steve Coll has apologised for his earlier comments.
Steve’s comments were regrettable, however, I accept his apology.
