"Iraq Is A Corpse" - Seymour Hersh

"Iraq is a corpse. General Petraeus is an undertaker, putting makeup on the body, keeping the stench down and waiting for the next administration to clean up the mess."
Seymour Hersh

Seymour Hersh is the journalist who exposed the My Lai massacre in 1969 during the Vietnam War. He was in Regina last night to deliver a lecture entitled "Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Now: Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan," to journalism students at the University of Regina.

Seymour Hersh is one of the last of the great journalists.

I fear that television has taken the mickey out of print journalism since it's almost impossible to count the new journalists who are of his calibre.

It's all down to sound bites and video clips. Gone are the days of the Lippincotts and Alsops.

I fear Afghanistan is too my friend.

As bush and McConJob tell us how normal things are in Iraq, US embassy employees are under orders not to sleep in their own beds due to the extreme danger.
