James Carroll Errs on Israel’s Security Fence

A correction by James Carroll in the Boston Globe fails to clarify his mischaracterization of  Israel's security barrier as "a high cement barrier that will run hundreds of miles..." His incomplete correction does not indicate that concrete sections will constitute only a tiny proportion of the projected 480-mile route. More than 97 percent will consist of a chain-link fence, with walled parts confined to areas that present an immediate risk of sniper gunfire.
