Letter: Battle over Kosovo

Sir: Robert Fisk possesses the admirable quality of reporting events as he sees them, without being beholden to any of those involved such as national governments and international organisations. It takes tremendous courage to describe events as they are rather than as the various spin-doctors would like them to be reported.

Those who do not want the people to know the truth, and those who themselves do not want to know the truth, will always be with us. We owe a huge debt to Mr Fisk, and The Independent, for enabling us to have a better understanding of what is really happening in the world.
