The increasingly valuable Moon of Alabama gets another scoop. Human Rights Watch, back on August 15th, accused the Russians of using cluster bombs in Georgia, accompanied by a lot of moral huffing and puffing.

Turns out the bombs were of Israeli manufacture, and used by the Georgians. The Georgians have admitted using them. The original report was by one Marc Garlasco, who moved over to Human Rights Watch after working for the Pentagon. HRW has acknowledged cluster bomb use, but has not retracted their now baseless accusations against the Russians.

One must admit that the Pentagon does take information management seriously. It'd be interesting to know how many other operatives are out planting propaganda, and using NGOs as fronts. Lots and lots, I bet.
