Cheney's Nemesis, Seymour Hersh, Reveals White House’s Secret Plan to Bomb Iran

A long article from America's least DC establishment oriented magazine about Seymour Hersh. Stephen King hit it right years ago in Firestarter when he concluded that if you had information involving government crimes and cover-up Rolling Stone was the one magazine you could take your story to.
What's the main lesson you take, looking back at America's history the last forty years?
There's nothing to look back to. We're dealing with the same problems now that we did then. We know from the Pentagon Papers -- and to me they were the most important documents ever written -- that from 1963 on, Kennedy and Johnson and Nixon lied to us systematically about the war. I remember how shocked I was when I read them. So . . . duh! Nothing's changed. They've just gotten better at dealing with the press. Nothing's changed at all.
