Harper’s Response to DOD’s Statement

Center response to follow by tomorrow. Highlights from Harper’s:

“Your response is extremely disappointing.

I asked that you name specific errors in our report. Despite your claims to the contrary, you have yet to do so. Instead, you have reasserted, and in many cases misstated, claims from the NCIS report.

You have also simply invented claims from Harper’s Magazine, only to then assert that these invented claims are false.

This is beneath the dignity of the United States military.

I must assume at this point that you have not actually read the story.”

“You may of course make airy claims about the “speculative and unfounded” nature of our reporting. But I must insist that you immediately cease making false claims that the story contains factual errors. On the evidence of your own error-riddled rebuttal, that simply is not the case.”
