Chai-on's first message ascribed the falsification claim to "a Korean
preacher"; his follow-up stated that the charge was "originally
raised" in the posting to the indymedia site.  It is now admitted that
there was no evidence for the original charge.  Until someone produces
evidence, there's no reason to believe such falsification occurred.
All we have is evidence of the recycyling of a baseless claim via the
Internet.  The left critique of US practices and policies is only
cheapened and discredited if we give credence to this sort of urban
