Seymour Hersh says U.S. Special Forces in Iran


Seymour Hersh, who exposed the My Lai massacre in Vietnam, and more recently scooped everyone with the Abu Ghraib scandal, says U.S. Special Forces are operating in Iran. Apparently they’re softening up the joint, targeting nuclear installations and missile sites.

Well, that’s just great. You’d think the pit the U.S. dug itself into in Iraq would be a small clue as to the stupidity of this initiative, but no, evidently not. The White House said his report is ‘riddled with inaccuracies,’ which I think is code for “damn, he’s onto us.”

Update: Here’s Hersh’s New Yorker article.

Warren Frey is a journalist, freelance writer, podcaster, video producer, and all-around media consultant currently based in Vancouver, Canada. His written work has appeared in such publications as Metro Vancouver, the Westender, Mac | Life and the Japan Times.
