Friday's New York Times included the following Editor's Note on the paper's Op Ed page: "An Op-Ed article on Tuesday discussing the vulnerability of the proposed Freedom Tower to terrorist attack should have included additional information about the writer, Daniel Benjamin. Mr. Benjamin was once paid to serve as an expert witness on Al Qaeda in a lawsuit involving Larry A. Silverstein, the developer of the tower. Although the lawsuit had nothing to do with the Freedom Tower, that relationship should."

The Alliance for Human Research Protection (AHRP) has reason to believe that federal regulations for the protection of children as research subjects have been seriously violated in federally funded HIV research.

We have learned that a series of Phase I and Phase II drug experiments were conducted on infants and children who were under the guardianship of the New York City Agency for Children's Services (ACS), and living at Incarnation Children's Center, a foster care facility under contract with ACS.
