Submission + - Yaman Salahi Watch

pfrCalif writes: There are two sides to every story, and the 'Lee Kaplan Watch' story from earlier didn't smell right to me. Most Watchdog websites go out of their way to use documented, cited facts to prove their points, but Yaman's website seemed to be rife with anonymous sources and unsubstantiated alarm. Lee Kaplan has a response that is worth reading.

The Cal student at Berkeley took great glee in what he had done. In detail, he explained on his site how he had gone about smearing my reputation, something that would later become evidence in court. He also began interlinking over with other web blogs set up by other students and other people active in the ISM and even began sending out whatever false accusations he could to web sources, citing himself anonymously as a viable news source. Incredibly, many of the other sites printed his calumny.
