Seymour Hersh Redeems Himself by Outing President Obama



Seymour Hersh always took the leftist side.  He wrote about the massacre of the Vietnamese in My Lai without mentioning the torturing of Americans throughout Vietnam.

He also outlined the American prisoner abuses at Abu Ghraib without talking about Iraqi killings of American prisoners.

At this point I thought that Hersh was one-sided Jane, one-eyed Jack, a myopic bloody hearted fool.

And yet now, to his credit, Seymour Hersh redeems himself by outing mama-shorts Obama for taking credit for killing bin Laden when the attack was precipitated by the Pakistani military.

Hersh tells that the Pakistani military was keeping bin Laden a prisoner for five years before they invited the U.S. to come in and kill him.  Furthermore, a Pakistani officer led the SEALs on the raid.  A firefight did not take place. The only bullets were the bullets that killed bin Laden.

Obama pretends that the Pakistani military had nothing to do with the raid.  In fact, they led the raid.

Hersh’s revelations do not make me rethink Obama.  I always felt that he was dishonest.  He lied about the video at Benghazi.  He lied about keeping your own doctor on Obamacare. He lied about the care at the Veterans Hospitals.  He lied about the IRS attacking conservative groups.  He lied about lying in his universe of lies.  He is the Pluto of lies.  That’s right, Pluto itself is a lie. It is only a dwarf planet.

Obama’s lies do make me rethink Hersh.  I now see him as a man who sticks up for the truth no matter what its ideological underpinnings. I used to resent his Pulitzer prize.  Now he can keep it.  Just please take away Obama’s Nobel Prize.
