Following is an excerpt from an interview with Paul Sheldon Foote, professor of accounting at California State University, Fullerton, which aired on Press TV on September 11, 2008:

Interviewer: Do remarks by Israeli minister Rafi Eitan – indicating the use of force and resorting to violence against the officials of a sovereign country, a member of the United Nations – constitute a violation of international law?

Paul Sheldon Foote: This is the story of his life in all respects. It is very appropriate that we are talking about this on the anniversary of 9/11, because a year after September 11, 2001, this man was traveling around the United States for a year, using a false name on an Israeli passport, meeting with known drug dealers. The FBI monitor him very carefully, on the assumption that he might be plotting another 9/11-type attack on America that he could blame on the Islamic world. So it is beyond illegal... This guy makes the Mafia look like choir boys.
