Disaster capitalism disaster coming soon to a bookstore near you

Antony Loewenstein is currently writing his third book, a "disaster capitalism" exposé. Thus he's producing an increasing number of blog posts such as this:
Private contractor CACI has done very well in the post 9/11 world (including providing the guards who tortured detainees at Abu Ghraib in Iraq).
The embedded link above is to an earlier Loewenstein post stating:
Private contractor CACI provided some of the torturers at Abu Ghraib in Iraq.
The embedded link is to a 2004 story alleging that a single CACI employee was involved in Abu Ghraib abuses.

So Loewenstein morphs a single CACI employee accused of prisoner abuse into "some of the torturers" which he later morphs into "the guards who tortured detainees at Abu Ghraib".

If Loewenstein's past and present form is any indication, his upcoming disaster capitalism tome is going to be another error-riddled disaster in and of itself.

And when he get sued for libel, he'll have a hard time pinning it on some vast Zionist conspiracy.

Although I can't imagine what possible damages they could hope to attract. His only assets would be a few unsold boxes of his other books.

How will he be tagged with libel? To do so would require evidence that he understands the concept of truth versus falsehood, but Ant has never demonstrated the capability for making such a thinly sliced distinction.
