    Despite the past controversy caused by the Macbeth case, Geoff Millard, president of the Washington, D.C., chapter of VAIW, told Cybercast News Service that he does not believe any independent verification of the panelists is needed.

    "We have gone through that process, and so we don't feel like the press needs to spend their time doing that," he said. "We have a lengthy process to do that, and it's gone through the process." Millard also said that his organization would not provide Cybercast New Service with photos of the testifiers in Iraq.
