Seymour Hersh - one of al Qaeda’s declared “favorite reporters.” Runs in same circle as Isikoff, VIP’s Pat Lang and Karen Kwiatkowski the Lyndon LaRouche nut.
I don’t know if Hersh’s account makes any more sense than the official line, but if he is calling BS on Obama’s story, more power to him.
In this case, since Obama is so loathed by conservatives, they're willing to believe a fabulist like Hersh. We shouldn't go down that path. A number of conservative sites, like Red State, are already calling Hersh's story a bunch of cock and bull nonsense.
