Seymour Hersh: Bashing Our Military Again!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

If any one person has caused more damage to our national will and the morale of our military than John Kerry it has to be Seymour Hersh. His latest rant about our military was delivered, on foreign soil naturally, at McGill University. Some quotes and excerpts:

"If Americans knew the full extent of U.S. criminal conduct, they would receive returning Iraqi veterans as they did Vietnam veterans," Hersh said.
“In Vietnam, our soldiers came back and they were reviled as baby killers, in shame and humiliation,” he said. “It isn’t happening now, but I will tell you – there has never been an [American] army as violent and murderous as our army has been in Iraq.”

During his hour-and-a-half lecture – part of the launch of an interdisciplinary media and communications studies program called Media@McGill – Hersh described video footage depicting U.S. atrocities in Iraq, which he had viewed, but not yet published a story about.
