More Fiction Than Fact Being Reported on Ethiopia's Renaissance Dam

Much of the reporting in the past week on Ethiopia's Renaissance Dam, under construction on the Blue Nile, has been inflammatory and misinformed.  The following two items struck me as balanced  reporting: Ziad Khalifeh's 6 June 2013 piece in the Arabian Gazette titled "Nile Dams--Egypt, Ethiopia, Look for Safe Ground" and an Associated Press piece dated 3 June 2013 titled "Panel Report: Nile Dam Won't Affect Egypt."
