This Man is a Loon

I had a professor when I was completing my undergrad studies a couple years ago that liked Seymour Hersh. Only Lord knows why as Mr. Hersh's allegations have never been proven, except in the case of the My Lai massacre. He is prone to wild allegations, and does not cite named sources in his "investigative" pieces. Richard Perle once quipped that Mr. Hersh was the "closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist." It appears that Mr. Hersh is at it again. This time he is accusing former Vice President Dick Cheney of authorizing the assassination of Benazir Bhutto: (A tip of the hat to Jammie @ Jammie Wearing Fool)

A special death squad assassinated Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on the orders of former US Vice-President Dick Cheney, an Arab TV channel has reported.

“Cheney was the chief of the Joint Special Operation Command and he cleared the way for the US by exterminating opponents through the unit and the CIA. General Stanley was the in-charge of the unit,” The Nation quoted US columnist Seymour Hersh, as saying.

The US death unit killed Bhutto because she had told Al-Jazeera TV about the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, Hersh said. The US leadership did not want Osama to be declared dead. It would have raised questions about the US Army’s presence in Afghanistan, he claimed.

According to Hersh, the former Lebanese PM Rafique Al Hariri and the army chief were murdered for not safeguarding US interests and for refusing to set up US military bases in Lebanon.

Mr. al Hariri was assassinated by a Syrian team, on the orders of Bashir Assad. Though Mr. Assad denies having anything to do with the murder of Mr. al Hariri, he was sweating quite a bit when the UN and EU began investigating the assassination back in February 2005. In the wake of the assassination Lebanese officials arrested four individuals in September of 2005 that they believed was involved in the attack. They are still awaiting trial under the international criminal court.

Could Mr. Hersh provide some credible evidence of what he accuses the former vice president of doing, please? For once? This fever-swamp moonbat needs to slink back into whatever hole he crawled out of. He should consider himself lucky he has not yet been sued for libel or slander with the wild, unfounded allegations he tosses around. And is it any wonder that these accusations sound almost like a conspiracy-theorist's tirade?

He should not be writing for any news publication. He should be writing for the Weekly World News, reporting on Bat-boy's newest story, or discussing the specifics of a meeting between President Obama and the Martian secretary of state.
