Harvard backs away from "Israel lobby" paper

The Harvard Kennedy School of Government logo has mysteriously disappeared from the disgracefully shoddy paper recently co—authored by its academic dean Stephen Walt. (The 'logo' remains in the Harvard Abstract to the paper. And the report is still listed as one of the JFK 'Faculty Research Working Paper Series.') Additionally, there is a semi—disclaimer at the start of  the paper which was not there originally: 'The  two  authors  of  this  Working  Paper  are  solely  responsible  for  the  views  expressed  in  it.   As  academic  institutions,  Harvard  University  and  the  University  of  Chicago  do  not  take  positions  on  the  scholarship  of  individual  faculty,  and  this  article  should  not  be  interpreted  or  portrayed  as  reflecting  the  official  position  of  either  institution.'
