Alan M. Dershowitz, the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School writes about an extraordinary about face on the part of Sir Richard Goldstone in - Goldstone Backs Away from Report: The Two Faces of an International Poseur.

In an interview with Jewish Forward, Goldstone denied that his group had conducted “an investigation.” Instead, it was what he called a “fact-finding mission” based largely on the limited “material we had.” Since this “material” was cherry-picked by Hamas guides and spokesmen, Goldstone acknowledged that “if this was a court of law, there would have been nothing proven.” He emphasized to the Forward that the report was no more than “a road map” for real investigators and that it contained no actual “evidence,” of wrongdoing by Israel.
