Rights group suspends analyst over Nazi collection

September 15, 2009 09:54

A human rights group has suspended its senior military analyst after a pro-Israel blog reported that he collects Nazi memorabilia. Carroll Bogert of Human Rights Watch says Marc Garlasco is being suspended "pending an investigation." The suspension was first reported Monday by The New York Times on its Web site. Bogert said Tuesday the organization knows that Garlasco collects German and American World War II memorabilia, but officials have questions about whether they've learned everything they need to know. Garlasco's collection was revealed last week on Mere Rhetoric, a pro-Israel blog. Bogert says Garlasco has never expressed any anti-Semitic views, and the group has no evidence that his hobby affected his analysis.
