Updates and Corrections: Biosphere2 and Israeli Organ Harvesting

In a recent post, we linked to a blog’s photo essay on Biosphere2, the “failed” and “abandoned” enviro-architectural project in the Arizona desert. But that information wasn’t accurate. The University of Arizona is now operating Biosphere2, which is used as a laboratory and is open to tourists as well.
And in a more distant post, I discussed why an accusal of “the Israeli Army of harvesting organs from Palestinians wounded or killed by soldiers” was “probably false.” In a separate but related story, it has since been reported that “Israel has admitted that in the 1990s, its forensic pathologists harvested organs from dead bodies, including Palestinians, without permission of their families.”
Thanks as always to the readers who send in corrections.
