It’s a disgrace! New Statesman forced to apologize to Nadhmi Auchi

A cross post from the Real Barack Obama.

Many months have passed since RBO began updating readers about the on-going webscrubbing at the behest of Iraqi-British billionaire businessman Nadhmi Auchi. The most recent version was the Auchi Webscrub-O-Matic 7.0.

Today, we bring to you the latest chapter in this saga. Prominently posted on the front page of The New Statesman we find an apology to Mr. Auchi:

We recently published links to articles originally published by others which made serious allegations about Nadhmi Auchi. A number of these allegations have now been withdrawn by their original UK publishers on the grounds that they contained significant inaccuracies and we fully accept that to be the case. We should like to offer our sincere apologies to Mr Auchi for any distress he has suffered as a result of our linking to the articles.
