It's the Frickin' Forest

The big story today is that the last month of Israel's slaughter of Lebanon was brought to us by the Washington neocons as another cakewalk, slam-dunk, runup to the big Friday night game against Iran. The story was broken by the esteemed and accurate investigative journalist, Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker magazine (someone needs to nominate this guy for the Nobel Peace Prize!).

Meanwhile NPR continues its "Gameday" coverage of the ceasefire: how many rockets, numbers of troops, hours of the ceasefire, etc. Perhaps they will get on the phone to Seymour Hersh before day's end--we'll see. In the meantime skip NPR and watch/listen to today's Democracy Now!'s extended interview with Hersh--you won't be disappointed.

A few other news outlets around the world also considered the Hersh story newsworthy enough to include in their coverage, for example CBS, ABC, and Arutz Sheva of Israel!
