Kosovo: cutting

through the cant

Sir: I have been consistently impressed by the standard of Robert Fisk's reporting of the Kosovo hostilities and conscious that he is a war reporter of the highest calibre.

His front-page article of 17 April moved me to anger and to tears. It also demonstrated Mr Fisk's integrity and humanity. I have never read a more powerful report.

Amidst all the fudging, half-truths, misinformation, evasions, pretence and outright lies, Robert Fisk has consistently shone the spotlight of reality. This latest report should make those who are trying to cover up the truth squirm. Hopefully, some of the bereaved and injured will now be able to be told what really happened.
