As both a free-lance journalist and a writer for The New York Times and the Associated Press, Hersh has written controversial and groundbreaking reports on the C.IA’s bombing of Cambodia, Henry Kissinger’s wiretapping of his staff, the C.I.A’s operations against Chilean President Salvador Allende, and prison abuse in Abu Ghraib. Hersh currently contributes regularly to The New Yorker . In addition to his journalistic contributions, Hersh has published eight books.

Hersh event on tape?

I missed the Seymour Hersh event -- does anybody happen to know if someone taped it (praying...)?

unpleasant realities

yes. and too bad even such an "independent" heavyweight as Hersh will not come out and pronounce 9-11 for what it was: an "Inside Job," or more precisely, a False Flag intelligence black operation, brought to us by the ruthless world elite as represented by the US, UK, and Israel...with the spineless, mute complicity of countless other world governments, apparently.

most americans have not heard of Robert Fisk, so his pronouncing the Truth of Non-11 a few months ago---or at least his grave doubts about the guilt of Muslims in the attacks----didn't exactly cross our national radar screen.
