Mr. Thompson, I posted this to my blog
I will leave it up to Mr. Thompson if I should take down my posts to this blog which express skepticism. His call. I was wrong about him. If he wants them down, I will take them down. If he would rather my incorrect impressions remain up so all can see that I was wrong (albeit, with this apology), I will do that instead.
I am very happy to have been wrong about him.
Let me know which it will be. I will leave them up or take them down, at your discretion.
Also, you have email. I sent it to you before seeing this, alerting you to your article appearing in an overseas paper without the change you made to the article yesterday. My skepticism probably shined through in its tone, and I am sorry for it as well.

Well, now, the question is who is this guy Terrance? If he's been peddling disinformation for 20 years, I suspect he's a lot more than a simple nut job or con man. Does he work for some intelligence agency, or maybe the DNC? Or for that detective agency clinton used to do his dirty work?
This was an obvious setup, and if not for a little digging around that was posted here yesterday, it probably would have worked.

"if I should take down my posts to this blog which express skepticism."
Why should you? YOU WERE RIGHT! He is guilty of shoddy reporting for not having checked his sources.
His admission and regret (hopefully) doesn't change those facts.
You should leave your comments up, because you questioned the very points, that later were found out to be fraudulent and wrong. You have good logic, thought processes and instinct -- except now when you are trying to be overly generous. ;)
