Bellesiles Followup

Just to follow up on the Michael Bellesiles post from last week, it turns out the story he wrote for the Chronicle of Higher Education about a student whose brother was killed in Iraq was indeed fabricated. But not, apparently, by Bellesiles. For reasons left unexplained in an editor's note, it turns out the student made up the story. Very odd.
