Human Rights Watch suspend Marc Garlasco, amateur de militaria nazi

"Nous nous demandons si nous avons déjà appris tout ce que nous devons savoir sur cette affaire." (Carroll Bogert, HRW)

Sur "l'affaire" Marc Garlasco de HRW:
Marc Garlasco, un collectionneur d'objets nazis chez Human Rights Watch et Marc Garlasco de HRW est un fervent collectionneur de militaria nazi
C'est John Schwartz du New York Times qui annonce la mise à l'écart de l'"expert militaire" de HRW:

"A leading human rights group has suspended its senior military analyst following revelations that he is an avid collector of Nazi memorabilia.

The group, Human Rights Watch, had initially thrown its full support behind the analyst, Marc Garlasco, when the news of his hobby came out last week. On Monday night, the group shifted course and suspended him with pay, "pending an investigation," said Carroll Bogert, the group's associate director.

"We have questions about whether we have learned everything we need to know," she said".

"This question becomes even harder to answer once you check out the entire CBS interview, which sheds some more light on what Garlasco was doing in the Pentagon:

At the Pentagon, Garlasco was chief of high value targeting at the start of the Iraq war. He told 60 Minutes how many civilians he was allowed to kill around each high-value target - targets like Saddam Hussein and his leadership. 'Our number was 30. So, for example, Saddam Hussein. If you're gonna kill up to 29 people in a strike against Saddam Hussein, that's not a problem,' Garlasco explains. 'But once you hit that number 30, we actually had to go to either President Bush or Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld.' Garlasco says before the invasion of Iraq he recommended 50 air strikes aimed at high-value targets - Iraqi officials. But he says none of the targets on the list were actually killed. Instead, he says, 'a couple of hundred civilians at least' were killed."

In other words, in his previous job Garlasco contributed to the unnecessary deaths of "a couple of hundred civilians at least," and in his current job he goes after those faced with the same difficult task of fighting wars that inevitably cost the lives of innocent civilians.
Garlasco-Gate: The Gift That Keeps on Giving, Israelly Cool

"Great photos", d'après Marc Garlasco, voir en particulier les great photos d'Hitler prises par un amateur ...

En 2008, Garlasco écrit dans un forum: "Mon idiot de neveu ne s'est pas informé de la date du "'nazi' show" et se marie le 22. Moi, je ne le raterai pas!

"Garlasco, 2008: "My idiot nephew didn’t check the ‘nazi’ show schedule and is getting married on the 22nd. I will not be denied!"

En effet, HRW risque d'avoir encore quelques surprises désagréables sur son expert militaire qui aimait tant démoniser Israël.
