[edit] Criticism

Edward S. Herman has published articles, such as "The Politics of the Srebrenica Massacre" [1], where he criticized the validity of the term genocide in the case of Srebrenica massacre, pointing out inconsistencies for the case of organized extermination such as Bosnian Serb army busing of Muslim woman and children out of Srebrenica.[1][2][3] This position was criticized by Marko Attila Hoare[4] and John Feffer.[5]

He is also criticized for denying the Rwandan Genocide and the plot to exterminate the Tutsi's of Rwanda. [6]
