Iran Uses Seymour Hersh Column to Criticize the US

Imagine that you are a reporter/journalist in the United States. Imagine that your country is involved in a global war against terrorism after terrorists brought their jihad to your backyard. Imagine that another country that supports terrorism and craves the destruction of Israel and the United States is going nuclear. Imagine that you are afflicted with Bush Derangement Syndrome to such an extent that you cannot separate Bush bashing from exposing national security information. Imagine the nuclear developing country uses one of your columns to attack the United States at the United Nations. Does it make you sick? Are you beside yourself with remorse because your words are used against the United States? Not if you are Seymour Hersh.

The BBC reported today that Iran delivered a letter to the United Nations accusing the United States of breaching international law. Iran claimed the USA's "illegitimate and open threats to use force against the Islamic Republic of Iraq" are in "obvious contravention of international rules and the principles of the United Nations". According to the BBC, the Iranian letter "REFERRED SPECIFICALLY to a report in the New Yorker by journalist Seymour Hersh, which suggested US military planners were considering a bunker-busting nuclear strike".

Instead of just voicing similar sentiments as the Left, the terrorists are now citing the articles by American journalists. How proud the journalists must be! Hersh should go ahead and clear a place on his mantel cause this makes him a shoo-in for a Pulitzer next year.
