Most of what we know about the killing of Osama bin Laden isn’t true writes Seymor Hersh.
“It’s been four years since a group of US Navy Seals assassinated Osama bin Laden in a night raid on a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The killing was the high point of Obama’s first term, and a major factor in his re-election. The White House still maintains that the mission was an all-American affair, and that the senior generals of Pakistan’s army and Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) were not told of the raid in advance. This is false, as are many other elements of the Obama administration’s account,” Hersh writes in the London Review of Books.
If Sy Hersh is correct here http://t.co/tlEyLzHPvl the US press got played in a massive disinformation campaign about Bin Laden's killing.
