"Israel called on the U.N. to cancel a report which said it had committed war crimes during its December 2008-January 2009 Gaza offensive, after its author said he may have been wrong. South African jurist Richard Goldstone chaired a fact finding mission which in a 2009 report to the U.N. Human Rights Council said both Israel and the Islamist group Hamas, which controls Gaza, were guilty of war crimes in the conflict. ... Goldstone indicated in his Friday essay that had Israel cooperated with him at the time, it could have shown civilians were not deliberately targeted 'as a matter of policy.'" (04/04/11)
