"Three Cups of Tea" still under fire

Controversy is still surrounding Greg Mortenson and the accuracy of his books, Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools. Yesterday, a former climbing partner claimed to have "misspoken" to Jon Krakauer about Mortenson's climbing experiences. Regardless of the partner's words, Krakauer had numerous sources, including an article penned by Mortenson himself.
Today, I came across an editorial published in New York Times on April 20. The editorial, written by Nicholas Kristof, reserves judgement of Mortenson. I found it to be fair and reasonable. Anyone following the Tea-scandal can read the editorial here.
