Seymour Hersh and that story about the Bin Laden killing

"Who believes, or ever believed, that bin Laden presented such a threat to twenty-three fully armed SEALs that he had to be shot in self-defense? And yet this is still the administration’s official story."

That's from this, an interesting piece about a few things including those which American journalists find terribly interesting (American journalism and other American journalists) but also some things of much wider importance, e.g. "the administration’s efforts to cover up the February 2010 massacre of five innocent people, including two pregnant women, by US Special Forces operators in Gardez, a provincial capital in Afghanistan. US officials told reporters the massacre was the result of an honor killing carried out by Taliban militants."
