The Western Journal has retracted this Op-Ed, which was published in error without having been submitted to our normal editorial review process. The Editorial Board did not review the Op-Ed until several hours after publication and determined that it did not meet our editorial standards, as it presented obvious speculation as if it were established truth. Truth being our most important company value, we take pains to avoid even the appearance of playing fast and loose with it. That being the case, the Board made the decision to retract the Op-Ed, and we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience caused by our failure to follow our own process and standards.
