Seymour Hersh on Osama bin Laden’s death: ‘It’s one big lie, not one word of it is true’

Seymour Hersh states that Osama bin Laden’s death is ‘one big lie, not one word of it is true’

Gee, think the president could have lied about killing Osama bin Laden? (sarcasm intended).

He also rails against the timidity of journalists in America, their failure to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth.

He states that the New York Times spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would” – or the death of Osama bin Laden. “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true,” he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011.

If we had real journalism in this country, we wouldn’t be facing a lot of the problems with currently have. There is little investigative journalism these days working hard to uncover truth.

He is angry about the timidity of journalists in America, their failure to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth.

Don’t even get him started on the New York Times which, he says, spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would” – or the death of Osama bin Laden. “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true,” he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011.

Hersh is writing a book about national security and has devoted a chapter to the bin Laden killing. He says a recent report put out by an “independent” Pakistani commission about life in the Abottabad compound in which Bin Laden was holed up would not stand up to scrutiny. “The Pakistanis put out a report, don’t get me going on it. Let’s put it this way, it was done with considerable American input. It’s a bullshit report,” he says hinting of revelations to come in his book.

The Obama administration lies systematically, he claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him. “It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama],” he declares in an interview with the Guardian.
