As the US Congress is about to debate whether it ought to adopt a resolution in effect denouncing the UN initiated Goldstone Report on the Gaza War - why in heavens name the US ought to be involved in such a deplorable consideration, especially given the distortions of the report before members of Congress, God only knows! - perhaps some pertinent facts in relation to the Report are called for.
Desmond Travers was one of the four members of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict, which produced the controversial Goldstone Report. Travers is a retired Colonel of the Army of the Irish Defence Forces. His last appointment was as Commandant of its Military College. He also served in command of troops with various UN and EU peace support missions.
