This just doesn't make sense.

And, for future reference, don't use "--" within an article; use "—" which gives "—". --Brian McNeil / talk 11:53, 13 October 2009 (UTC)Reply

Title of Book

Is the book called "9/11", as indicated in the article, or "Interventions", as indicated in the cited sources? --Alanmaher (talk) 17:50, 4 August 2010 (UTC)Reply

That is confusing indeed. I browsed a library catalog, and see that there are Chomsky books with both titles, both about the September 11 2001 attacks on the US.
That same catalog lists an Arabic translation for "9/11", but not for "Interventions". However, Rosenberg's Miami Herald article is quite clear, and it seems to me that the only source for the book title is a confidential contact of Rosenberg. So we can do nothing more, or less, than post a correction.
I suggest
 
Correction — Aug 4, 2010
 
According to the Miami Herald, the title of the book sent to a Guantanamo prisoner was Interventions (a book of newspaper essays about the September 11, 2001 attacks), not 9/11 as stated in the article. Wikinews apologizes for the error.
