Attention Whore

Seymore Hersh must be feeling lonely or something. That is the only reason I can find for his latest revelation of bullshit.

“Yuh. After 9/11, I haven’t written about this yet, but the Central Intelligence Agency was very deeply involved in domestic activities against people they thought to be enemies of the state. Without any legal authority for it. They haven’t been called on it yet. That does happen.

“Right now, today, there was a story in the New York Times that if you read it carefully mentioned something known as the Joint Special Operations Command — JSOC it’s called. It is a special wing of our special operations community that is set up independently. They do not report to anybody, except in the Bush-Cheney days, they reported directly to the Cheney office. They did not report to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff or to Mr. [Robert] Gates, the secretary of defense. They reported directly to him. …

“Congress has no oversight of it. It’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on. Just today in the Times there was a story that its leaders, a three star admiral named [William H.] McRaven, ordered a stop to it because there were so many collateral deaths.

“Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us.

Darth Cheney’s Executive Execution Squads. Apparently, Hersh must believe that the leftists didn’t hate Cheney quite enough, so he has to go and kick it up a notch so as to return their blood to a rolling boil.

If you don’t know the previous unfounded and unproven bullshit, you can find a mess of it here.

    I would make an intelligent, useful comment… but why bother? I can barely stop laughing anyway.

    Hell, that is the number one rec’d article over on DimUnderground. It is pure gospel over there.

    Yes, I got it from FDL (aka: DUMB for people who know how to not write in all caps).
