Leading investigative journalist Seymour Hersh reveals that last year’s Israeli bombing of Syria’s “nuclear” facilities was a classic case of false intelligence and hyped threats (and yet the mainstream media played along again):
Joseph Cirincione, the director for nuclear policy at the Center for American Progress, a Washington, D.C., think tank, told me, “Syria does not have the technical, industrial, or financial ability to support a nuclear-weapons program. I’ve been following this issue for fifteen years, and every once in a while a suspicion arises and we investigate and there’s nothing. There was and is no nuclear-weapons threat from Syria. This is all political.” Cirincione castigated the press corps for its handling of the story. “I think some of our best journalists were used,” he said.
UPDATE: Hersh discusses his story on CNN:
