    LONDON – The co-authors of a scathing report on Israel's conduct during its 2008-2009 invasion of Gaza said Thursday they stood by their work, hitting back at critics who've pushed to have its findings withdrawn after the report's lead author, Richard Goldstone, aired doubts about one of its central conclusions.

    "Nothing of substance has appeared that would in any way change the context, findings or conclusions of that report with respect to any of the parties to the Gaza conflict," they said in the statement. "We firmly stand by these conclusions."

    Indeed, the option of admitting their report is a big pile of manure is rather humiliating.
