"NGO Monitor’s president, Prof. Gerald Steinberg, said on Thursday that regardless of Garlasco’s status with the organization, “HRW’s problems go far deeper.” “This human rights superpower needs an independent and systematic investigation, particularly of its Middle East and North Africa division,” Steinberg said. “As James Hoge Jr. prepares to become chair of HRW’s board, this should be his first priority. “The organization’s reliance on Garlasco’s claimed ‘military expertise’ raises alarming questions about the credibility and bias of its activities,” Steinberg continued. “Since 2004, Garlasco co-authored many of the reports condemning Israel, each of which needs to be investigated or withdrawn. Garlasco’s reports on Gaza were also central to the UN’s Goldstone Report.”"
