Dear Mr McVay

I understand that you stated on CNN last night words to the following effect:

Then there's British author David Irving, a man who has lied under oath in
Great Britain, and lied under oath in Canada, and, wonder of wonders,
contradicted himself with his Zundel testimony... 

Since it is possible you are the victim of a misunderstanding, would you
kindly identify to me precisely on what occasions you maintain I "lied under
oath." These are very serious and cowardly allegations indeed, particularly
where the victim has no opportunity of defending himself. 

It is important that you should realise the consequences of uttering such wild
allegations within the jurisidiction of courts where the laws of libel are
taken seriously. Professor LIpstadt (and I have seen her correspondence with
you) evidently failed to appreciate this fact, which is now causing her much
