To my knowledge, Mr. Blumenthal did not talk with anyone in the Princeton University administration before unfairly and without evidence accusing Professor George of "attacking Princeton's administration" for its handling of this incident.
To the contrary, Professor George was helpful at each step of the investigation, as were the students who, like Professor George, received the e-mails that we now know to have been a hoax.
Professor George encouraged the students most affected by these threats to remain calm and to trust the University officials who were responding to this matter. We are most grateful for his help.
