Seymour Hersh - Exposed

The BBC recently ran a story concerning Hersh's claims that "US special forces 'inside Iran'"

They were so taken by Hersh that the BBC added this to the piece.

The BBC's Justin Webb in Washington says that while Hersh could be wrong he has a series of scoops to his name, including the details of the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal last year.

His track record suggests that he should be taken seriously, our correspondent says.

And the BBC's track record doesn't suggest, it screams we should not take them seriously.

We are talking about the vaunted world wide BBC after all. So how come they say Hersh scooped the Abu Ghraib story? They should know better.

How does this square with the fact that the Abu Ghraib scandal — like the My Lai massacre — was uncovered first not by Hersh but by Army investigators?

Hersh also said he hadCD roms full of additional photographs. To this date none have been found.

Continue reading Hersh's track record and you will see why the BBC are so anxious for you to trust him. He fits their agenda.
