I'm sorry to say that Pete is absolutely right here, and mistakes are part of the process.

I've published mistakes in most of my work. Like Pete, I was sucked into the incorrect Vanderhorst biography, and made the same mistake as Steve about ATOP in the "patches" book. Researching the "black world" is one of the most difficult journalistic endeavors, because so much information is fragmentary and out-of-context. The best we can do is to acknowledge places where we're not clear and do our best to correct the record when we can.

Like Steve, I hate having published things that turn out to not be true, but unfortunately that's part of the game with this research.
