    Longtime reporter, yes. Broke a big story at one time. Then went off the deep end. Check out his book on Kennedy as another example.

    He's done far more than that, and this is just some of it. But I understand a very liberals desire to defend Obama.



    Seymour Myron "Sy" Hersh (born April 8, 1937) is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and author based in Washington, D.C. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine on military and security matters. He has also won two National Magazine Awards and is a "five-time Polk winner and recipient of the 2004 George Orwell Award."[5]
    He first gained worldwide recognition in 1969 for exposing the My Lai Massacre and its cover-up during the Vietnam War, for which he received the 1970 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. His 2004 reports on the US military's mistreatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison gained much attention.

    I did not defend Obama, I pointed out that the source is not credible. As you would discover if you read that wiki article you link, you will discover that he tends to use hearsay from a single source.

    According to Pulitzer Prize-winning author Seymour Hersh, it was actually the al-Qaeda-linked Syrian rebel group al-Nusra—funded by Obama—trained by none other than our own CIA—and not al-Assad—who was behind the attack.
    Shockingly, this was known by Obama hours after the attack.

    I believe that the AP confirmed the Syrian opposition was responsible as well.
    I first heard about this yesterday on a Peter B Collins podcast episode, and he mentioned that Hersch is writing regularly for the New Yorker now...who weren't interested in the story, still writes for the NY Times...who weren't interested either. Neither was the Washington Post, or any other mainstream U.S. media outlet, so he has to go to the London Review of Books!

    And, now that it's out there, have any Republicans spoken up about something that would be a treasonous offense by a U.S. president if proven? Or, are they still sifting through Benghazi or expressing their outrage at Obama for getting his picture taken at the Nelson Mandela memorial?

    But, then again, I don't hear any Republican outrage about how President Obama has expanded the security and surveillance regimes as revealed by the Snowden leaks. No complaints about the expansion of drone warfare, prosecutions of whistleblowers etc.. There seems to be a lot of common ground on many issues, and as a result are never up for debate in a two party system!

    ONE big story? Seems to me he's part of a dying breed of real journalists who can't be bought off, intimidated or been caught up with taking sides for political expediency. Hersch doesn't care if it's a Democratic or Republican Administration, if there's smoke, he's going to look for the source of the fire. And there are so many things that smelled about that attempt to launch a new war in Syria, that I'm inclined to believe that he's got some real sources to back up that claim that the Obama Administration was withholding evidence and trying to fabricate a justification for an air war against Syria.

    All very good points. Unfortunately the parties don't prosecute each other for their crimes against our constitution for the three fingers pointing back at themselves. That's why partisans contribute to the problem.


    As to your last point, their is a House Resolution (discussed in some detail in another thread) sponsored by a Republican!!!! And co-sponsored by a Democrat, which has an estimation of 80% chance of passing, but then theres the senate and yada yada.

    If you seriously want to discredit Seymour Hersh, have at it.
