Re: Robert Fisk, RIP

I remember reading an article in the Independent written by him just a few days after the attack on the world trade centre in September 2001. I'd never paid much attention to him before, but his forthrightness, in saying the Americans more or less had it coming to them, ensured I did in the future.

He was also one of the old school war correspondents who actually visited war scenes as opposed to those who simply comb through social media or are mollycoddled by being embedded with troops of one of the fighting factions.
