The Washington Post has unintentionally posted the uncensored version of the Mehlis report.
It has now replaced it with the official version.
The changes were made just hours before publication to protect the identity of the people mentioned.
But As’ad Abu Khalil discovered another difference between the two versions. In the original, Mehlis condemns the Lebanese media for spreading rumours and speculation about the Hariri assasination. Mehlis believed that the continuous anti-Syria accusations would prejudice a fair investigation.
