Another Look At Colonel Richard Kemp–The Man Goldstone Purposely Ignored

April 3, 2011

There was no reliance on Col. Kemp mainly because the Report did not deal with the issues he raised regarding the problems of conducting military operations in civilian areas and second-guessing decisions made by soldiers and their commanding officers in the fog of war. The Mission avoided having to do so in the incidents it decided to investigate.“

Of course, anyone who has had even a cursory look at the report knows that that is exactly what the Goldstone Report did: deal with the issues he raised regarding the problems of conducting military operations in civilian areas and second-guessing decisions made by soldiers and their commanding officers in the fog of war.
Let’s face it. Goldstone is not saying anything in his Friday mea culpa that we didn’t already know.
If he had listened to Colonel Richard Kemp in the beginning instead of ignoring his testimony, Goldstone could have avoided having to backtrack now.
Here are 2 videos of what Kemp said:
