Richard Falk: a canary in the coal mine or a fly in a cesspool?

Maybe a snake in the grass will do better. Or a pile of... whatever, just read his outburst on the Boston bombing:

The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world. In some respects, the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen, especially if there is no disposition to rethink US relations to others in the world, starting with the Middle East.
There is much more of the same styled crap there, so for the impatient: it is all Bush, Israel Firsters and Zionists whodunit. Including breaking Obama's conciliatory and progressive spirit.

To remind you about prof Falk:
Richard Falk is the UN’s “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” He has held the post since 2008, despite exposure as a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.
And there is more in this piece by Anne Bayefsky. Unhinged as he is, Falk is not alone, of course, but still in a category of his own. More on Falk. And more on Flak. And more on Flake.

Update: and finally a response from the US officialdom:
The United States completely rejects the provocative and offensive commentary by Mr. Richard Falk, UN Special Rapporteur for the Palestinian Territories, regarding the recent terrorist attack in Boston, Massachusetts. The United States has previously called for Mr. Falk’s resignation for his numerous outrageous statements, and these comments underscore once more the absurdity of his service as a UN Special Rapporteur.

Not a fly in a cesspool but a large turd in one.

Indeed ;-)

Well, Barry is doing his best. I read he almost choked on using the word "terrorist" in regards to the Boston bombers. He can't call the bombing workplace violence, so maybe it will have to be sports violence. I'm sure we will never hear the word jihad from him.

I am sure Justice Dept, aided by others, will find a fitting formula. Grievances should be woven in, too...
