From a certain position he is right.

He is the single person with the most influence on Planescape: Torment as a project. Torment is like it is, to a large degree, due to Henkel's decisions as a producer. Without him it would have been a different game.
In an interview a few years ago he explicitly gave full credit for the content primarily to Chris Avellone and Collin McComb, among others, while he was the producer and did some "technical design", whatever that may be.

edit: All according to a certain interview, which contained no aggression or vitriol at all. He was asked what his role was and why he is usually not mentioned. He found it understandable given the circumstances.
