Daniel Pipes on Beslan

Chris Bertam destroys a Daniel Pipes column. When I choose to ignore or reject a claim because Daniel Pipes makes it, people sometimes accuse me of not taking something seriously just because I don't like the source. The reason I don't like using Daniel Pipes as a source, however, is because he is unreliable. These sorts of easily refutable claims color my impression of Pipes's work when he discusses issues on which I have no knowledge, simply because I assume them to be equally specious until proven otherwise. This is the price of hackery.
