NEW YORK – In a letter to a leader of a Geneva-based NGO that watches UN activity, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s office condemned Human Rights Council member Richard Falk for his remarks on 9/11, calling his views “preposterous.”

Just prior to Tuesday’s US Congressional hearing into the UN Human Rights Council, the secretary general’s office sent a letter which "condemned" the Human Rights Council’s Special Rapporteur Falk for his "preposterous" comments questioning whether the 9/11 terrorist attacks were orchestrated by the US government.
