Hersh Story Grows
Lots of attention is being paid to Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh's claim in The New Yorker that the United States engineered the Israeli attack of Lebanon in order to ensure that Hezbollah forces would not be able to attack Israel once the U.S. bombing of Iran begins. Hersh has a track record of exposing U.S. misdeeds, going back to the My Lai massacre in Vietnam. In 2004, Hersh broke the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. In April of this year, Hersh claimed in New Yorker that the U.S. is planning on using bunker-busting nuclear bombs against Iran. In the new piece, Hersch cites anonymous sources and the U.S. State Department has denied his story. Read the latest New Yorker article. Here's the transcript of Hersh's appearance on CNN Late Edition on Sunday.
Reactions: Of course, the Freepers are going crazy, accusing Hersh of being a traitor for revealing the conspiracy or mentally ill for having dreamed it up. Israeli officials are denying like crazy in the Jerusalem Post, because they are NOT puppets of the U.S.
