I propose that I be given full ability to review Ian O'Doherty's oeuvres before publication and, where necessary, provide factual rebuttal.

Mr O'Doherty does a serious disservice to readers in his cheerleading of the US's recent illegal strike against Syria (Irish Independent, April 11).

Mr O'Doherty knows full well that on this, and previous occasions, where Syria has been accused of using chemical weapons, the entire international community has provided no evidence to substantiate its claims.
