Who is Seymour Hersh and why does what he says matter? Mr. Hersh exposed the cover up of the 1968 My Lai massacre of between 347 and 504 unarmed south Vietnamese citizens and received the 1970 Pulitzer prize for International Reporting for his work. He has notably investigated the CIA’s secretive Project Azorian, a super secret effort by the CIA to recover a sunken Soviet Submarine just northwest of Hawaii. In 2004, Hersh recently exposed the mistreatment of detainees at the Iraqi Prison Abu Grahib.
In a wide-ranging interview published by the Guardian, Seymour Hersh says that the raid which killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011 is “one big lie” and that “not one word” of the Obama administration’s narrative on what happened is true.
Hersh’s solution to the lapdog media that whitewash’s Obama’s dirty laundry is to shut down news networks like NBC and ABC and fire 90% of mainstream editors, replacing them with real journalists who are outsiders and not afraid to speak truth to power.
“The republic’s in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple,” concluded Hersh.
